Quotes

[first lines]
Doctor: Mr. Twiddle, you are a very sick man. You have a serious case of trombonosis. Now, I would suggest complete relaxation at some quiet, remote hideaway, because if you do not get away from these noisy horns, your entire nervous system will shatter. You will just blow up!
[Mr. Twiddle recoils in shock]
Doctor: My wife here will give you our recommended travel folders.

Sh-h-h-h-h-h (1955) - a last major studio animated hurrah-and you'll Okeh, it,too!
12 November 2016 | by gcarrasSee all my reviews

One of Universal's final good and great cartoons, due to Tex Avery, and Kurt Hahn, no offense, but your review is similar to Tex's 1952 Metro (by the *way*, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's famous aconym is (emphasis) not, shouting -Metro's cartoon"Rock-A-Bye Bear". This is the one with the 1920s famed Okeh Laughing record used as a soundtrack.

Unfortunately,Universal's "classic cartoons": afterwards became the Chilly Willy pity-tuggers, the cutesy Woody/nephew/niece/etc. cartoons and boring Beary Family shorts *all* directed by Paul Smith and written, almost always by Cal Howard (also responsible for the last several years of Warner Bros.cartoons, which did give us slightly better cartoons there..). If any of Universal's current releases, like "Almost Christmas","50 Shades" sequel, etc.etc.etc.etc.have a character watching a Lantz cartoon, the 1960s-70s ones shouldn't be it, (especially in a more mature Univ. movie!) ones going back from this true classic by Tex Avery to the 1930s should be the cultural references if Universal, a la WB with Bugs, Yogi,etc. or Disney with Mickey, Elsa, does an in-joke cultural reference. Now...Shhh.. I'm trying to sleep. lol Way to go ex (he did the *only* Chilly Willy cartoons where the penguin's not a character type used for Hanna-Barbera's Yakky Doodle duckling----where only pity is seemingly the only raison d'etre. (All of which is moot as Universal's movies thankfully overall have no Walter Lantz connections, which means no 1960s Paul J.Smith shorts..sadly it means no gems like these of Woody the Giant Killer,either.) By the way this board's stupid dis-allowing of shouting is total censorship and causes vast misinformation about a point.This censorship of so-called "shouting" as it is called is in reality mentioning Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's acronym, once again. Just like Warner Bros. or National Broadcasting Network. I am not shouting okay? Back to the review for the final line, "Shhhh" was the final great cartoon released by Universal Pictures. No other cartoons should, in my humble opinions, ever have been released after 1955 for Lantz. Then a whole blemish on the overall legal would not even exist....:)
