Blue Ribbon Reissue Titles

The Merry Old Soul is a 1935 Merrie Melodies cartoon that was rereleased in 1952 as a Blue Ribbon reissue.

Plot

This cartoon combines two nursery rhymes to illustrate the ill-advised marriage of Old King Cole to the Woman in the Shoe and the King's unfortunate attempts to keep her "many children" under control.

Trivia

Animation of Old King Cole crying and wailing at the end of this cartoon would be reused in the ending of Good Night Elmer.
