Speaking of the Weather is a 1937 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Frank Tashlin.


It's midnight at a bookstore, and suddenly the characters from the books and magazines are coming to life. A bulldog from an adventure book attempts to rob a bank, using girls as a distraction, but he is caught and sentenced to Life (Magazine). Luckily there's a magazine called Escape.
