This is typical 1930s color-cartoon animation, just before the sophisticated Fleischer and Disney styles took over the genre. It's a picnic trip on Fontaine Fox's classic Toonerville Trolley. Sparks fly as The Terrible-Tempered Mr. Bang, Powerful Katrinka, and the Skipper head off to a less-than-peaceful summertime picnic excursion aboard the ultimately-existential Toonerville light-rail system. It's too bad more of these Toonerville cartoons weren't made, and it's a mystery, too, because the newspaper comic strip on which they were based ran from 1915 into 1955. The children will roar with delight, and adults will marvel at the simpler and less-sophisticated times in which the Toonerville Trolley operated.
