Red-Headed Baby (1931) - Merrie Melodies musical short from Warner Brothers. This is one of those hallucinatory early cartoons with a lot of big-eyed characters moving in unsettling unison as they sing a creaky number. A bunch of toys come to life, and a toy soldier woos the doll of the title until a spider shows up.  Sober: 6/10...Intoxicated: 8/10

Lady, Play Your Mandolin! (1931) - The first Merrie Melodies cartoon. A motley assortment of animals in a Mexican cantina sing and dance. The title song had been a big pop hit. It's not just the animals dancing, as even the building itself and the surrounding foliage get into the act.  7/10

Smile, Darn Ya, Smile! (1931) - Merrie Melodies muscial cartoon featuring Foxy, here working as a trolley car engineer running into all sorts of problems, like a fat hippo lady. Silly but amusing in its creaky way.   6/10
