Pigs in Lederhosen
21 March 2015 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

There's a song and jokes about cheese, skiing, yodeling, goats and Saint Bernards in this so-so Terrytoon.

There were some plots and themes that Paul Terry's staff returned to every two or three years and had since the 1920s, when he was producing cartoons for Amadee van Beuren. One of those was Switzerland, and the jokes didn't vary that much. The techniques grew more sophisticated with each iteration, but remained remarkably constant. Although the time between iterations was growing longer (the last time had been 1940's SWISS SKI YODELERS), the differences in the versions was growing less stark. The distinction now was a matter of emphasis -- more skiing, less yodeling.
