No Place Like Rome is another one of those sing-a-long cartoons Famous Studios is known for
11 December 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This was a Famous Studios Song Kartune (though this version has the Harveytoons logo) that I just watched on YouTube. It all takes place in Italy with various amusing gags concerning the country's shape (the obvious boot and foot one), the Leaning Tower of Pisa (where people going in come out in a different position), abstract modern painting, spaghetti eating, and a singer trying to break a wine glass (which results in all the other window glasses broken instead). It's here that he tells us to "Follow the bouncing ball" as the song, "Oh, Ma, Ma, (The Butcher Song)" is played. After that, a train carrying a just married couple comes through a long tunnel. You can probably guess the punchline for that one...I didn't find myself laughing out loud at this one but I was fascinated by the gags just the same. No Place Like Rome is worth seeking out for anyone that loves animation especially for those Famous Studios completists out there.
