The Gay Nineties

With a series of gags contrasting Post-War standards -- World War Two, that is -- with the idyllic images of middle-class life half a century earlier, this Screen Song offers the title tune to its audience.

The gag sequence that starts this Screen Song is a good one, and the chorus that sings the the song is likewise good, but the series, which had been revived three years earlier -- the original Fleischer series had flourished for a decade, starting in 1926 -- had quickly settled into a cookie-cutter format. It lacked both the wildness of the Pre-Code cartoons, and the name performers -- including Cab Calloway, Louis Armstrong and Ethel Merman. Still, for all its comparatively wan effect, it's very pleasant.
