Truckin' at an All Star Picnic
13 April 2014 | by (Western Washington State, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This rarely shown cartoon may not be for everybody. While it is cute, colorful and tuneful, the characters are all caricatures of stars that were household names in 1937. Unfortunately it may be lost on an audience that is unfamiliar with these names and faces. However, if one IS familiar with the old stars, this will be a real treat. It starts with everyone heading down the road to a picnic and once there, everyone does their particular shtick. They all enjoy their potluck and play a rousing game of baseball. Martha Raye opens her big mouth and sings Truckin' and pretty soon everyone is going into their own interpretive dance routines. Greta Garbo, with her enormous feet, really digs in and grooves while Boris Karloff shows us he can make those big old Frankenstein feet 'truck' like mad. There really isn't any "plot" as such, but the festivities are infectious and the end of the cartoon finds everyone headed back into town. Like I said it may not be for everyone, but I like it well enough to have kept an old 16mm print of it on the shelf for many years and have never tired of showing it.
