A little late on this batch, kinda forgot about this.
Page Miss Glory - 3/10
The character animation here is very disconcerting, I'm curious to see how quickly this evolves... or if we're going to be stuck with these weirdly elastic people all the way through. I'm with 1S0 in that it's a lot of not-very-funny gags stringed together as fast as possible, though I did smile at the duck-as-cars gag and the elevators thing.
I Love to Singa - 7/10
Very cute. I wonder what the significance of the German parents being owls (I think ?) is. Aren't owls supposed to be wise ? This is the year of Benny Goodman playing at Carnegie Hall I think, which is pretty much the moment jazz becomes accepted as vaguely respectable, they had their finger on the pop-cultural pulse there.
Wholly Smoke - 4/10
Educational cartoons are generally a bad idea. This is no exception. I also wonder why children shouldn't smoke, in 1936 ? Obviously cancer isn't a worry yet, I guess the emphasis on nicotine means that addiction is the concern, that makes sense.
Aside from the message, it's all just "hey, here's some cultural things you might recognize", which I mostly don't, and even if I did, meh.
Porky in Wackyland - 6/10
I'm pretty sure chuckling at the "Darker Africa" gag makes me a racist, but there you go. This is a much better execution of "let's throw a bunch of stuff at the viewer" than Miss Page. The dodo being introduced like a huge star was amusing, then we get some proto-Roadrunner humour, that's nice. They weren't afraid to go meta either.
Porky in Egypt - 3/10
Wait, what ? I don't... what ? I guess the joke is that when the camel gets "desert madness" he starts talking ? I don't know. I liked the Mario-Bros-like angry sun, but it lost me after that.
