What zavkram doesn't realize is that "Jingle Bells" was never designed as a Christmas song, because the holiday is never mentioned or referred to in the lyrics. The song actually deals with a winter romance.

The importance of viewing classic animated cartoons in the proper context...

The importance of viewing classic animated cartoons in the proper context...

By
What the previous review fails to understand or appreciate is that the purpose this particular cartoon was to highlight a popular song; in this case, a popular holiday-themed song (in keeping with the winter theme of the cartoon-proper.)

This cartoon was one of a series of music-based shorts called "Screen Songs"; which, as it states in the BCDB entry, were first made in the late 1920's and early 1930's by the Fleischer Studio and then revived in the 1950's by their corporate successor, Famous Studios. The purpose of these cartoons was to promote popular songs of the day; although by the time of the series' revival, however, a lot of those songs were more or less "oldies".

While the cartoons in this series were actually quite popular in their day; it's understandable that, when viewed by contemporary audiences, they may not appeal to all tastes. American society and popular culture have, of course, changed dramatically since these cartoons were first released theatrically; and so when viewing them, one should do so with an awareness of the period during which they were produced.

Enjoyable Cartoon Ruined by Sing-Along

Enjoyable Cartoon Ruined by Sing-Along

By
I was enjoying this short. Typical cartoon animal antics. Then about halfway through, it turned into a sing-along. Follow the bouncing hen's egg as you sing Jingle Bells. This type of cartoon was probably quite cheap to make, because of the sparse animation required of the sing-along segment. I don't like this type of cartoon, because the sing-along is a cop-out, so they don't have to do as much animation. It also deprives the viewer of more cartoon craziness, which is what we really want to see.
