Cartoon Production Information:

Footage from the Freleng-directed cartoons "How Do I Know It's Sunday," "Billboard Frolics," "Flowers For Madame" and "Clean Pastures" was reused.

All scenes with black characters (such as Uncle Ben and Aunt Jemima) have been removed for TV syndication.

Al Jolson is caricatured.

In September of 1943, beginning with A Feud There Was, Warner Bros. began re-releasing select color cartoons in their Blue Ribbon program. Typically the Blue Ribbon reissues received new opening sequences with Blue Ribbon title cards and standardized music. Cartoon production credits were also removed. Between ten and fifteen cartoons were released in any given year, with cartoons coming from as far back as 1935. The reissues continued until the close of the studio in the 1960's.

All Blue Ribbon cartoons were released as "Merrie Melodie" cartoons regardless of the original series. The first "Looney Tunes" short to be included in the Blue Ribbon series was The Hep Cat, which was added in 1949. The only current prints of many of these cartoons are the Blue Ribbon releases, although restoration of these cartoons with original elements and titles is always ongoing.

Includes the song "September in the Rain," composed by Al Dubin (lyrics) and Harry Warren (music) for the 1937 Al Jolson film "Melody for Two."

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

Ah, I'll probably kick the bucket before they put this one on DVD......mainly because it's been cut to shreds in TV prints. This isn't an OFFENSIVE cartoon--merely a celebration of America's pop-and-jazz heritage.

September In The Rain

Comments By:
Just like so many other great 1930's musical cartoons with racial-stereotype scenes, this film's probably doomed to total obscurity. The sequences eliminated from nearly all TV prints are the two best in the film: the title song (in which Al Jolson,...  (read more)
