The terrible tempered Mr. Bang is commuting to work. When the trolley takes more than 5 seconds to arrive, he follows the tracks to the Skipper's house, where he bets him $10 he won't get to work on time. So motivated, the Skipper cuts breakfast short, but he hasn't paid the bill and his power is off. His wife rigs a sail, which gets him going, but a typhoon blows them off course. They land atop Mr. Bang's train. A tunnel knocks the trolley off the train and Mr. Bang into the train but he hasn't paid the $10 bet. The Skipper's wife, Powerful Katrinka, reels in the railroad track to bring the train back, then gets the $10 from Mr. Bang. Written by Jon Reeves <>

Trolley Ahoy (1936)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Mr. Bang, an obnoxious jerk, is upset that the trolley isn't on time so he goes to the conductor's home and begins to throw a fit. He then bets the old man $10 that he can't get to the station on time.

TROLLEY AHOY is the second film I've seen to feature the old conductor and it's certainly a minor step up in regards to entertainment. What really stands out about this movie is the quality of the animation, which looks extremely good. As with other films from Van Beuren Studios, this film looks terrific with some wonderful shots of the trolley in action and I loved the way the color is used. With that said, stories were never a strong point with Beuren but this one here manages to be entertaining thanks to the two leads as well as the wife.
