I liked this early Merrie Melodie cartoon, We're in the Money
10 January 2013 | by tavmSee all my reviews

This is one of three Merrie Melodies cartoons based on songs from Gold Diggers of 1933 that was included on that movie's DVD. This was a Harmon-Ising production and it has toys coming to life singing and playing the title song to amusing life though I laughed heartily when the carbon heads of Laurel & Hardy did some nonsense gibberish. The movements were pretty good especially when one of those human toys was playing on the xylophone with his feet. Oh, and the coins in the cash register with the presidential heads were also amusing when they were singing. Really, I was just charmed by the whole thing so on that note, We're in the Money is worth a look for anyone interested in these early talkie cartoons.
