Urban Blight: Row! Row! Row!

video

I'm not able to get around to much posting these days so, in the meantime, I thought I'd leave you with a cartoon which combines much of the classic Fleischer elements:  urban blight, lechery, alcoholism, real 'he-man' style chauvenism and, most importantly, funny animals! Attention Passengers: You are no longer in Disneyland!





Mickey and Minnie would probably roll up their windows in this neighborhood.

Hah, a really great one.
Typical Fleischer inconsistency strikes— though the animation later in the pic makes it clear that the lead is a variant of Bimbo, his ears earlier in the film make him look more like a bear.
Alas, when Bimbo goes over to a more accurate artist, that same artist isn't as good with Betty...
