I Wanna Play House is a 1936 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Friz Freleng.


Two bear cubs, one brown and one black, sneak away from Papa Bear to enjoy a game of hide-and-seek. The black cub goes into a Gypsy trailer and gets drunk on cider. The little bears' harmless hijinks soon turn into danger on the runaway wagon. In the end, the brown bear and black bear land next to the father. The Papa Bear spanks the brown bear again, but then he throws a rock at the black bear, as the cartoon end.


This cartoon is notable for being the very first appearance of the Concectric Circles opening that was soon afterward forever associated with Looney Tunes.

This is the first in 3-hue Technicolor.

This is the final Merrie Melodies to have WARNER BROS. PRODUCTIONS CORPORATION and Present with a small WB shield and VITAPHONE under WARNER BROS. Cartoons after this would have the zooming shield with VITAPHONE Presents appearing after the WB shield zooms in.

Status of original titles

The original end titles have been lost due to the 1995 dubbed version release of the LaserDisc 5th volume. We may never ever see them again.

Local TV stations continue to air the cartoon in its dubbed version. All prints on the internet are the same.
