"And remember Buffalo Bill was once a kid like you."
22 April 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Short subject from Warner Bros. pays tribute to some classic western ballads, such as "Home on the Range." There's a karaoke atmosphere about it, with the lyrics displayed on screen and the narrator encouraging the audience to sing along. It all may seem hokey to our cynical types today but it was probably fun for audiences at the time. The Melody Makers sing all the songs during the karaoke bits. There's some history given behind the songs and some old film footage used to illustrate this. Also there is Dick Foran from the 1937 movie Cherokee Strip, singing a cute song called "My Little Buckaroo." It's all harmless and mildly entertaining, depending on your tastes.
