We're in the Money is a 1933 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Rudolf Ising.


When humans leave a department store and close down for the night, a group of toys comes to life and plays We're in the Money. Eventually, even the money joins in for a final chorus.


This was the last cartoon that Hugh Harman, Rudolf Ising, and Frank Marsales worked on with Schlesinger. Marsales moved over to the Universal/Walter Lantz studio to compose for Walt Disney's Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, while Harman and Ising moved over to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer to open up their cartoon studio. Eventually they would work with composer Scott Bradley, who went on to compose music for MGM until 1958.
