A Morality Tale In A Cartoon
21 June 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Wow, what a incredible dated cartoon....but still a lot of fun to watch. It winds up being a dramatic and romantic cartoon...and a tale of sweet forgiveness.

A shallow crooner named "Rooster Bingo" wows the women on the radio, especially a hen called "Emily." One day Emily's good-guy boyfriend comes calling with his flowers, but Bingo comes riding by in his expensive roadster (a very cool car) and sweeps her away. By the way, the crooner sounds more than just a little like Bing Crosby. Emily, meanwhile, giggles like Betty Boop. She is voiced by Bernice Hansen, who did a lot of cartoon voice-work in the 1930s. In this parable, Emily discovers the glamorous life isn't so much fun after all and the simpler existence with a man who truly loves her would have been the best choice in the end.

There wasn't much funny here except the very ending. I found this as one of the features on the DVD, "Follow The Fleet."
