Title: Hey-Hey Fever
A Hugh Harman - Rudolf Ising Production
Series: Happy Harmonies
Running time (of viewed version): 8:24
Commercial DVD Availability: A Tale of Two Cities
Synopsis: Famine grips Mother Goose land, so Bosko does something about it, in a dream, from which he never awakens, as he is starving in the real world.
Comments: Beige dog with dark ears named Bruno. I get it. Like Pluto. Mother Goose Corn Goodies; pretty big product placement... Old woman who lived in a shoe has one black baby. Fiddler reflections, and multiple background/foreground layers. Lots of boldly close camera shots. I'm not sure why there are two titles; retitle I suppose. Terrible music. Sideshow Bosko gets a rake in the face. Shadows on the wall during procession. Couple almost swears; doesn't have a pot to cook in, farm is shot to, well... Is Everybody Happy? is Bosko's catch phrase.
