La Petite Parade is an excellent Famous Studios cartoon by Irv Spector
22 November 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is another Famous Studios cartoon written by Irv Spector that I found on Thad Blog. It concerns a French matchmaker who-at 7 every morning-suffers the indignity of having a parade come by his house ending with the garbage truck, which passes over a hole in front of that house and inadvertently dumps its contents there! So this matchmaker goes to several officials and tells his story (love always hearing his "bomp bomp" in the middle of that) before going to the top who dismisses that hole as a "dent". His wife doesn't like that result any better so the husband goes to the king...What a wonderful original cartoon to come from a cartoon studio that by this time had lost their most popular characters (either to Harvey Comics or in Popeye's case, back to King Features). The animation was fine but it's really the voices-particularly that of the matchmaker-that shines through. La Petite Parade is most highly recommended to any animation buff especially Famous Studios completetists.
