When the lightkeeper's daughter is kidnapped by the peg-legged hippopotamus pirate, it's up to her boyfriend and his faithful pelican to rescue her and to sing a song about himself.
Paul Terry produced about two dozen cartoons every year. It is hardly surprising that he reused plots, which had last appeared two years earlier in PEGLEG PETE THE PIRATE, where the hero was also a mouse and Pegleg Pete was also a hippo. At least the pelican was new this time.
That's what Terry's staff did. They varied the details and improved the technical details. Given that the style George Gordon and Mannie Davis had evolved was a lot cleaner and with more fluid movement than Frank Moser had used, these are good things. However, given the repetition and wondering what the 1939 version will bring,I can't muster much enthusiasm.
