| This Little Piggie Went to Market is another of Max Fleischer's Screen Song cartoons
Just watched this Max Fleischer Screen Song cartoon on YouTube. It depicts various customers entering a movie theatre as an usher commands many exiting patrons to get out. Inside, we see the beginning of a "Para-Uni-Metrix-Patho-Foxy News" reel with cartoon logos of the Lion, Rooster, a Globe with a plane going around it, and a Mountain making music like a musical steam ship. Various gag-filled "news" items abound in a highly amusing manner before a live-action show of a now-forgotten entertainer named Singin' Sam warbles an updated version of the title song. After that comes one more animated gag of a trailer for something called The Beginning. On that note, This Little Piggy Went to Market is worth a look for any Max Fleischer enthusiasts out there.
