The Lady in Red is a 1935 Merrie Melodies short directed by Friz Freleng.


When the Mexican cafe closes for the bull fights, cockroaches come out to play.


  • As with many of the early Merrie Melodies cartoons, part of its purpose was to promote a Warner song, in this case the 1935 song from the Warner film In Caliente (also known as Viva Señorita). The song would later become a staple of Carl Stalling's catalog when he took over music direction of the Warner cartoons in 1936.
