Commentary on "The Music Mice-Tro" (1967) and "Plop Goes The Weasel" (1953)

I haven't done any new voice-over commentaries in a while, so I thought it would be fun to do a couple new ones. I have no idea why, but one of the two I did, "Plop Goes the Weasel" (1953) was rejected by, where I usually upload these. If anyone knows of a video-host site that doesn't randomly reject stuff upon upload, let me know.

Anyway, my initial goal for this entry was to look at two cartoons that are overlooked. Someone once requested that I do this and choose one from the golden age that should get more attention, and one later stinker that should remain overlooked. For reasons unknown, Dailymotion didn't mind the latter. But You will!

So, here's my take on "The Music Mice-Tro". -Gulp.-

Update: Guess video site "Zoopy" didn't care. Here's one of the best Robert McKimson Looney Tunes of the early 50's, "Plop Goes the Weasel". This is a great, overlooked gem starring Foghorn Leghorn, and I hope you'll see why!

Great job, Matthew! You would've been a asset as a VO on the Golden Collections.

Larriva later went on to direct episode of the "Mister T" animated series in the 80s. His work there isn't much better.

Though you didn't have time to finish what you wanted to say at the end of "The Music Mice-Trio", I want to point out Format Films did "The Alvin Show" in '61, so they have already pretty much got what they did best down pat, and it's that look that didn't really work for WB at all despite whatever effort they tried to do on this cartoon. It's more a UPA-feel since Herb Klynn and others there had previous worked at that studio in the 50's.
