Jiminy Cricket, What A Boring Short
21 November 2009 | by CalabossSee all my reviews

Fairly harmless, and practically script-less, nonsense about a group of men who dress up as gay cowboys and sing silly country/western songs on a dude ranch. Not much more than a 10 minute, black and white music video of 1930's country tunes.

Disney fans will instantly recognize Cliff Edwards' voice as that of Jiminy Cricket from Pinocchio. It's understandable that he sang and did voice work, as poor Cliff was not very easy on the eyes. He ended life penniless and the Disney Company wound up paying for his grave marker.

Inoffensive short has nothing to really recommend it, but it shows up from time to time as a TCM space filler.
