At sea, Krazy is one of the crew of a ship captained by a big, hippo-faced skipper that angrily yells commands in unintelligible growls. Not much happens topside except for singing and dancing, and weirdly contorting shipmates into mops and musical instruments, but below decks, the Chinese cook is having trouble with two frying pans full of fish. Krazy takes them to make use of them as xylophone-like keys for his music making. He also stretches and uses the cook's neck as a fishing rod. The Captain and the cook end up beating each other up.

Krazy Clears the Decks
12 April 2017 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Gould & Harrison continue to move Krazy Kat into the sound era with this effort set aboard a sailing ship. It's all synchronized sound, in which the gags are timed to a small band under the supervision of Joe DeNat, who would continue with the Mintz organization through its end a decade later.

Gould & Harrison were reported to be insane cheapskates, who had produced the silent Krazies for $900 each. Sound added greatly to their costs -- as it did to all branches of film making and exhibition -- and one economy was the simplicity of design of most of the characters. Several of them are simply line illustrations. This made the geometric, all-black Krazy Kat stand out in a cartoon in which several other characters have a large number of gags. Krazy is clearly a lead comic, not the star. The simplicity of the design also makes the print look cleaner and more attractive than most contemporary cartoons.
