LOONEY TOONS Rookie Revue (1941) (Remastered) (HD 1080p)

Rookie Revue is a 1941 Merrie Melodies cartoon. It features random gags about military life, set on an army base.

Plot

A bugler uses a jukebox to play reveille. In formation, one private has a great deal of trouble remembering what comes after "3"; after he gets it, he decides not to go for the $32 question. In the mess hall, the machine gunners machine gun their food while the bombers catch falling biscuits. The infantry marches for miles - past a "next time, take the train" billboard. The camouflage troops march by, invisibly. We see training substitutes: wooden guns, cars marked "tank" and, alas, a banner marked "parachute" deployed in mid-jump. More training: aerial games (of tic-tac-toe). The anti-aircraft division has target practice, on an aerial shooting gallery. Finally, in an elaborate process, a general provides firing instructions to a big gun; when it hits his own building, he says, "I'm a baaad general."

Censorship

In a series of mess hall gags, the scene where the Suicide Squad unhappily eating Hash from a bowl is cut on Cartoon Network and its sister channel Boomerang.

Availability

Status of original titles

The dubbed version was released on Laserdisc, resulting the original ending card to be long believed to be lost at the time. Not until 2008 was the cartoon restored from its original negative for inclusion in the Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 6 DVD release. As a result, the original ending card was restored.
