She Was an Acrobat's Daughter is a 1937 Merrie Melodies short directed by Friz Freleng.

Plot

Before the show begins at a movie theater, a patron stands and walks to the lone empty seat. A second patron switches to the seat just vacated. A third and a fourth and soon everyone in the house is caught up in a flurry of seat-switching. The newsreel contains a few gags and caricatures, then there is a sing-along of the title song. The feature spoofs The Petrified Forest. Finally, an annoying gosling sneaks into the projection room and plays with the controls before getting caught in the gears.
