Storyline

Paramount Noveltoons became Paramount Champions when they were re-released, which was a shorthand designation for theatre exhibitors so they would know they had played this one before. Cilly Goose creates a sensation when she paints one of her eggs gold and is hailed far and wide, in Mother Gooseland, as the "goose that lays the golden eggs." But, Cilly awakens and finds she was only dreaming. But one of the goslings from her latest hatching does emerge with a golden tooth displayed. Hey, a goose born with a tooth is rather rare.

Cilly Goose is another pretty enjoyable Famous Studios cartoon
26 June 2008 | by tavmSee all my reviews

This was one of those rare Famous Studios cartoon shorts that I just discovered on Thad's Animation Blog which linked this from YouTube. The title character had just laid an egg for the first time but finds her other farmland animal friends unimpressed since they have had plenty of children before her. After reading about how valuable a golden egg is, Cilly paints hers that color and gets so much attention, she gets booked at the Madison Square Garden to lay several in person! As in many Famous cartoons in the '40s, the animation is quite good and the music matches them perfectly. Nice use of pantomime in most sequences with an ending you may or not predict if you're familiar with many cartoons. Well worth seeking out.
