| Merrily We Roll Along
One of a standard series of cartoons for Termite Terrace over the next decade, in which the gags are set up by puns on the titles in a bookstore or magazine shop (Clampett's BOOK REVIEW (1946) for example). Here, it's advertising posters for popular commercial products. About two-thirds of them are no longer sold, so it becomes an exercise in popular culture archeology. Nonetheless, I expect the modern audience to be familiar enough with, say, Bon Ami cleanser, its baby chick mascot and motto "Hasn't Scratched Yet" to catch the drift. And the gags, as one can expect in a Friz Frleeng cartoon, are amusing.

That being the case, it should be noted that this cartoon saw the introduction of the song "Merrily We Roll Along" to Termite Terrace's files. Along with "The Merry-go-round Broke Down" it was their theme. Enjoy.
