Storyline

Little Audrey likes school, but doesn't like Mother Goose rhymes. She gets so involved in the crooks in her comic books that she doesn't hear when asked by the teacher to recite a rhyme, Instead she comes up with hip-gangster talk. Her punishment is to wear a dunce cap and sit in the corner. She goes to sleep, has a dream and finds out that Mother Goose is a "hep" character and that there is more excitement in the nursery rhymes than in her comic books.

Gander at Little Audrey's Teacher!
12 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

Bored to distraction by a classroom lesson in Mother Goose, Little Audrey pulls out a copy of "Phony Funnies" to take the edge off. We follow a few panels of Pinhead and Bird-Brain as they attempt to knock over Fort Knox. When called upon to read by her extremely hot teacher, Audrey hits her with a few lines of comic book noir. Donning a dunce cap, Audrey sits in the corner and daydreams. The differences between Audrey (Famous Studios) and Ralph Phillips (Warner Bros.) are incredible. Ralph daydreams to escape, while Audrey's teacher becomes Mother Goose and acts as her tour guide. Ralph's daydreams are fueled by his own imagination, not some cheap comic book device geared to capitalize on a national craze. The rest of the short finds Audrey and Mother Goose flying above storybook land, the latter singing nursery rhymes as they watch the locals enact lame puns. One amusing moment has a twenty-something Mary dancing to the jewelry store with a seventy-something sugar daddy, complete with shopping cart, in tow. The fact that Audrey knows enough to find this funny is rather telling. Frank Sinatra emerges from behind a broom to croon a chorus of "Let's Get Lost." At the fair grounds, Pinhead and Bird-Brain morph into Audrey's dream. In order to show just how mean this pair is, they roll a somewhat fey piglet for a penny. Stealing from Warners, we find a goose that lays golden eggs to the tune of "Turkey in the Straw." (An egg slicer cuts the hen fruit into coins.) Realizing that the crooks do not belong in this dream, Audrey grabs a trumpet and takes flight on Mother's goose. The highlight is Edward G. Robinson as a "hard berled" Humpty Dumpty the no one can crack up. No sooner does Audrey get her hands on them, she wakes up wrestling a stool in her classroom. Suddenly, Audrey is hep to the jive and spewing jazz lingo. A bird, similar to the one in Bird-Brain's head, pops out from behind Audrey's hair ribbon to sing the finale.
