Storyline

The sheep are gazing in a rustic little meadow and their herder falls asleep. The wolf sneaks up, steals his horn and lures the sheep to his place, but they escape. But the wolf captures Mary's pet lamb...and eats it. No, that's another story. He has the lamb in his stew-pot and the hero rescues it. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Little Boy Blue and Mary Too
23 February 2015 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

The wolf tries to steal sheep from Little Boy Blue and tries to grab Mary's little lamb in this somewhat sugary Terrytoon.

Although Paul Terry's staff rarely created anything as saccharine as some of the sticky efforts of Charles Mintz' cartoon unit at Columbia, they were overly fond of taking nursery rhymes, adding some competent but children-voiced chorale work by Philip Scheib and tempering them with some fairly good gag construction. This is one of that sort of cartoon.

Unfortunately, my taste runs more towards the model of character-driven gag work that went on at Leon Schlesinger's Termite Terrace factory at Warner Brothers. While there is no doubt that Mr. Scheib was a capable musical director, he did not have access to the major orchestra nor the library of great music that Carl Stalling had. As a result, he had to start from scratch with every cartoon, and that was a disadvantage that neither he nor the rest of the Terry staff could regularly overcome.
