Toon Sports: Boulevardier From The Bronx (1936)

Isadore "Friz" Freleng skewered one of the most popular pitchers of the 30's, Dizzy Dean, turning him into a literally cocky barnstormer in 1936's "Boulevardier From The Bronx".

I remember seeing this back in the day, but only now do I get a better appreciation of the visual gags. 

Rating: B.

First Merrie Melody cartoon to make use of Charlie Tobias, Murray Mencher, and Eddie Cantor's "Merrily We Roll Along" as its Main/End Title theme. It lasted through 1964.
