Harman & Ising's Buck Cheeser returns from is movie premiere the previous year. He's still living in a jug in a basement with his mother, but one evening, after she tells him to go to sleep, he leaves the jug to join with his hundreds of friends who are using a telescope to look at the moon. Inspired by a Buck Rogers cartoon, they decide to build a spaceship to go to the moon.
there's little to reproach Rudolf Ising for in the way of technical expertise. His skilled staff has produced a beautifully detailed cartoon, with all the usual cartoon tropes (the Milky Way is shown as a series of clattering milk bottles) and sight gags (there's a "Los Angeles City Limits" sign on a distant planet). My issues, as always in this period is with the unalloyed sweetness of their cartoon -- I like a bit more spice in my cartoons -- and with Bernice Hansen's squeaky, little boy's voice. For those who think children are cuteness and little else, this will be much more palatable.
