Shake Your Powder Puff was an interesting early Merrie Melodie cartoon
17 January 2013 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Just watched this Leon Schlesinger-Merrie Melodie cartoon short on The Gay Divorcée DVD. Directed by Friz Freleng with animation by Robert Clampett and Robert McKimson, it's basically a musical revue set at a barn with all the participants being animals. The showcase number is the title song as would be the case with many of these cartoons produced by Warner Bros. when the shorts' titles were those of tunes published by the studio's song sheet division. The movements are fine though there's not much that one would consider funny here but it's worth a look to see how much the crew tried to fill the standard 6 minutes of these things under the budget-minded Schlesinger's watch. So on that note, Shake Your Powder Puff is worth a look if you're an animation buff, like me.
