He finally takes a boat and practices at sea in order not to disturb anyone. His tuba-playing saves a ship from going on the rocks and he becomes a town hero. Written by

This is a UPA one shot cartoon. There will be very mild spoilers ahead:
This is a short about a little boy named Ollie and his big horn, the noise his horn makes and the negative reaction of his parents, the adults of the town, a farmer and animals to his horn.
It's a good short and has some very nice touches scattered here and there (look at the streetcar Ollie rides out into the country). It's a one shot cartoon and has a nice ending. Ollie is a likable enough kid with a fondness for playing a rather loud instrument, that's all.
This short is on a three disc box set containing UPA's Jolly Frolics. The set itself is excellent and this short is well worth watching. Recommended.
