I'd Love to Take Orders from You is a 1936 Merrie Melodies cartoon.


Father Scarecrow works hard all day in the cornfield. When the much smaller, Junior Scarecrow attempts to fill his father's shoes, his lack of size and intimidation skills render his scare tactics fruitless until, unbeknownst to Junior, Father Scarecrow gets his back. When Junior boasts of his supposed success to Mother Scarecrow, Father reminds son that Junior's not quite grown just yet.


The bed in this cartoon and Toy Town Hall look similar.

Status of original titles

The original end titles have been lost due to the 1995 dubbed version, as it was released on LaserDisc. However, the original end titles have been found on an old a.a.p. print from CN Latin America.

The dubbed version distributed on the Internet has some of the opening cut off. But according to old Turner airings, the original dubbed version starts normally.
