Belle is my favourite character. That Beast is so frightening, but he's so hot when we see him as a handsome prince in the end.
Gaston is just nasty, he thinks he's so cool, but he ain't.
- He's gorgeous - he has lovely muscles, and has got a six-pack.
- That 'Beauty and the Beast' song is sooo romantic. I love all the songs.
I love that clock Cogsworth --- wait a minute, are you saying we're not watching the Disney movie?
Look at the title blog post for yourself, does the year look like it reads 1991 or 1934, and does this blog relate to Disney, kids?
Oh man, we're watching the crummy Merrie Melodies cartoon from 1934.
Directed by Friz Freleng in his bland years?
And it's in Cinecolor? Compared to the pretty colours in the Disney one?
From the plot synopsis I've read on Internet Movie Database - it's not an adaptation to the fairy tale?
This is what the main girl will look like in this cartoon?
Compared to the beautiful Belle?
This sucks. We're outta here!
Goodbye kids, and scram!! Well, did you enjoy a bit of scenario I did? Well, I thought it would amuse ya - if you didn't like - then screw you (only joking). If you couldn't follow it - the children dialogue is in italics, and of course - my dialogue is not in italics. So, anyway - here is the ACTUAL review.
Release date: April 14, 1934.
Series: Merrie Melodies.
Supervision: Friz Freleng.
Producer: Leon Schlesinger.
Animation: Jack King and Rollin Hamilton.
Musical Score: Norman Spencer.
She approaches a table at the lounge, and she steals some bananas inside a fruit bowl. She slides a banana off the banana skin, and opens her mouth wide open for the banana to land in her gob. She then eats a whole bunch of grapes, in which each grape land in her mouth one by one. After eating some grapes, she burps - covers her mouth so that no-one can hear her. Then, she steals a whole box of chocolates and gobbles them all up - greedy pig.
So yeah, the girl then gets herself from "shuteye", she instantly falls asleep but she finds herself floating and ending up in a dream up in the skies. She then ends up falling down from the skies, with her patch forming into a type of parachute and floats, where we can see her bottom - so those guys really thought we would think of it as 'cute'? Her buttons fall off, where she falls down - and lands in some type of scenery or garden. I have to say that those layouts there are extremely weird - especially in 1934.
Humpty Dumpty then laughs loudly off screen at what happens, then we see him sitting on the wall (as he does in the Nursery rhyme). Humpty Dumpty then "had a great fall", he cracks on the ground in which we see multiple of toy bird figures that quack, then go into a dance routine. They use their stilts with wheels do to a skating act with Sleeping Beauty being played in the background, since the score is very popular for skating scenes. Up on the wall are these elves that are putting crackers inside the fan in which it looks like there is snow in the scenery. The ducks then crash onto a pile of building blocks, with each one stuck on their head reading "Nertz" - Nertz?? What, so since when did this have something to do with the card game "Nertz"?
The little girl and the soldier are then trapped, and have nowhere else to go. The toy soldier still has another trick, in which there is a cannon near him. He strikes out a matchstick, places it on the cannon in which it starts yelping in pain. What? Don't be ridiculous with gags like that, you can't just put a gag like that with no purpose, it wasn't needed!
The monster (or beast) then grabs the girl, and the toy soldier - well they're doomed. OR ARE THEY?? The dream fades back to the little girl at the end of her bed screaming. She wakes up - everything was a dream. She then jumps back onto her bed rather afraid. She hides under her duvet with her patch falling down where we see her anus - and that's all folks.
Well, kiddies, was it as good and as close to the Disney movie?? Not the least part. Well, truth to be told I don't really like the Disney movie very much (rather boring to me) but this short was just worse - no question. The short just followed to a similar Harman-Ising story and Friz Freleng seemed to be too influenced by them at that time. Of course, the colour in this cartoon seem very terrible to you with so much red/pinkish colours in it. Well, that's called Cinecolor to you - it's not meant to be good. I really hate that recurring part with the girl's bum showing with her patch falling down - for gosh sakes, I don't find it cute, or amusing. Anyway, I just added that bit of scenario at the very top just for fun, and thought it would amuse you. Of course, the morale of this short was that she ate chocolate during the night which gave her nightmares - only the Beast. I know they say sometimes eating sweets late at night gives you nightmares, but fruit - really? I guess it would make even more sense if she ate cheese at night.
