Conrad the sailor

Conrad the Sailor is a 1942 Warner Bros. cartoon in the Merrie Melodies series, directed by Chuck Jones. The title character, a.k.a. Conrad the Cat, is voiced by Pinto Colvig. The other featured player is Daffy Duck, voiced as usual by Mel Blanc.

Plot

The story takes place aboard a battleship staffed by Anthropomorphism cats (barely recognizable as such), most of whom are singing "Shovin' Right off for Home" as a chorale group. Cut to Conrad, who talks and sings exactly like Colvig's characterization of the Walt Disney. character Goofy.

As Conrad swabs the deck, he is interrupted by Daffy and his pranks. The two spend the cartoon chasing and tormenting each other. A running gag in the picture is that all action screeches to a halt whenever the ship's diminutive captain walks by, as both sailor and duck snap to attention and salute. The final gag involves Conrad and Daffy being chased by a shell from one of the ship's big guns. All three, including the shell, snap to attention as the captain walks by.

Innovation

Animator John Mcgrew. borrowed much of the staging for the cartoon from Sergei Eisenstein's film The Battleship Potemkin whilst it also saw his first use of match cut where different objects in separate scenes would have the same basic shape, with McGrew giving the example of a gun and a cloud.

Availability

Goofs

The Turner "dubbed version" replaces the original 1941-1955 Merrie Melodies ending music cue with the 1939-1941 Merrie Melodies ending music cue.
