| Mel Blanc was just around the corner
"I Only Have Eyes for You" in one sense seems like a relic of the days when the Warner Bros. cartoons were just breaking out of the Disney mold but hadn't yet gotten all the way. It portrays an iceman having the hots for a woman who only likes crooners, so he hires a professional imitator to sing like them while the iceman can pretend to sing. Sure enough, the whole plan eventually blows up in their faces. If anything, the iceman was asking for it, given that he was using the imitator as a mere means (that is, using someone so as only to benefit oneself).

I notice that one of the voice artists is Joe Dougherty, who provided Porky Pig's voice before Mel Blanc (and one can hear a Porky-style stutter in the iceman's voice). Mel of course joined the animation studio not long after this, and I would say that his arrival cemented their break away from the Disney mold.

Worth seeing, if only once.
