Wot a Night1931

  • 3.8
Tom and Jerry (not the later cat-and-mouse duo but a Mutt and Jeff-type pair of button-nosed, humanoid pals) are taxi drivers who pick up a couple of beardos at the train station. They take these passengers to a creepy castle where they end up trapped themselves as skeletons cavort and spirits sing spirituals. This haunted house comedy from the Van Bueren Studios (prolific animation producers in the early sound era) is a goofy delight that comes off as a cross between the Fleischer Brothers' work of the era and Disney's "Silly Symphonies."

These old cartoons are full of delightful surrealism. Cars drive underwater, trains shake off passengers, skeletons cavort — all in all a charming way to spend 10 minutes.

(Be warned, however, that there are slight racist undertones to the singing skeletons. Some viewers may be put off by the image.)

wot fun!!! fits right in with Ub Iwerks "Skeleton Dance" produced, I believe, in the same year. This is sheer Surrealism.

A glimpse into another time good and bad. There's a depiction of African-American skeleton jazz musicians which were the typical stereotypes of the day, which is the bad, however the voices and the song is authentic which is nice to hear. The quality of the film is great considering the age.

Great old cartoon! worth checking out!
