Fanny Zilch
30 January 2015 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

In the beginning of 1933, Paul Terry took aim at the competition. In this case, he was going after the market of the Fleischer's Betty Boop. He did not, like Van Beuren, do a knock off. His answer was Fanny Zilch, a tall drink of water who sang soprano operetta. Fanny appeared in several funny cartoons in this period, always with a melodrama setting, always fighting off Oil Can Harry (who, in one guise or another, would wind up fighting Mighty Mouse), and rescued by the rustic tenor.

Given the limited number of melodramatic tropes to make fun of and the rise within a year of the newly-enforced Production Code, there were only a certain number of stories that Miss Zilch could appear in -- not that this ever stopped him with, say, Mighty Mouse -- but Miss Zilch did not last long enough to remain fresh in memory -- she was one of the characters not exhibited on kiddy shows in the late 1940s.

Still, this one, in which the danger she escapes from is being trapped with lions and alligators, is a lot of fun.
