This is the last 'Merrie Melodies' cartoon of 1936. I have to say that the designs in this cartoon are just beautiful; I'd consider it on par with the art deco designs on 'Page Miss Glory'. The caricatures by T. Hee are incredible as well as the animation itself. The gags are pretty dated but it's still worth laughs and entertainment. I feel that the colours in this cartoon were the important factor of this cartoon as it creates such a "blues" environment that looks very stunning in both visual looks and atmosphere. The art direction was in fact very good; at least Leon Schlesinger didn't say "Put in purple; purple is a funny colour". It has lots of great animation by what appears to be Bob McKimson since he got screen credit and I'd imagine other great animators like Ken Harris worked on that one as he would already be animating by that point. The Ben Birdie caricature is my favourite.
