Jolly Good Felons was another pretty funny Little King cartoon for Van Beuren
Just watched this Van Beuren Little King cartoon on YouTube but I seemed to have missed some beginning scenes since what the previous poster mentioned happened I didn't see. The scenes in prison were pretty amusing like when the King feeds one of them some peanuts as if he were some monkey which with it's face (which is white as there is no racist humor here) somewhat looked like one and acted like one when he took the rest of the bag! Then there's another one who plays Tic-Tac-Toe and doesn't even get any x's or o's three in a row which makes him cry. There's an effeminate one who sews "father" on his handiwork and hugs himself. One prisoner that the King fingers a circle around a side of his head to indicate "cukoo" cleans his room while managing to take one of the window bars off for dusting! It's when the king encounters two prisoners in separate rooms playing checkers that he inadvertently starts a riot when he gives one of them a move which results in that one to lose completely. So he literally breaks out and threatens the Little King who gives him the keys. The resulting skirmish results in an amusing ending I won't reveal here. The version I watched, I'm giving a 6. If I ever see the completed version, I add some words to reflect that. But even abridged, I'll recommend Jolly Good Felons.
