The Doctor's 'Bang' Theory
15 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mr. Bang is a bundle of nerves. This is the character who is always angry and is yelling. You may have seen him in a few other cartoons. In this one, he sees a doctor right away about his condition, and the doctor advises he go down to the seashore and relax, that he needs "peace and quiet" to calm himself down. Interestingly, Mr. Bang gets mad when the doctor tells him the bill is two dollars! Wow, what we couldn't give to have a doctor tell us that today.

Mr. Bang, with his old-fashioned swim suit on and a big picnic basket, takes the trolley, the one operated by our old friend, "The Skipper." The ride is anything but peaceful. On the first stop, the trolley gets packed with a ton of people, including a drunken dog wearing a straw hat!

By the time he arrives at the beach, he's more of a wreck. It gets worse for Mr. Bang at the shore, of course. If you've ever wanted just to relax and people and things are annoying you, you can relate to this guy. He might be a crab, but I can relate to a few of his frustrations.

Some of the sights are really different as this is an old cartoon. Some are corny, some so bizarre they are funny, like a striped octopus coming out of nowhere and eating the picnic lunch. The dog gets to be a real pain in the butt, going "ha, ha, ha" in the face of Mr. Bang each time something goes wrong, but other times he's pretty fun.

Overall, odd enough to be entertaining but nothing to get "Bang" out of (sorry).
