This series was controversial even at the time due to the methods used to get the dogs to pose and "talk". In the UK, the "Performing and Captive Animals Defense League" printed a circular in 1931 detailing the alleged abuse these animals endured.

Dog lovers should get a howl out of this short satirizing "Broadway Melody"...
Dog lovers will find a lot of amusement in this short subject satirizing the MGM movie "Broadway Melody." All sorts of pups are attired in costumes and hats to give a strangely weird look to their appearance which is oddly human.
The sketch actually follows the plot of the original movie and how it's done is absolutely amazing.
Still, I had the feeling when it was all over that it was a highly contrived sort of thing with some nice staging and background effects. However, I have to admit it's an oddity and comes across as more of a curio for fans able to appreciate the early shorts designed to entertain audiences between showings of the feature films.
