Gandy Goose tells a young duckling about his trip to Mexico, where he fell in love with a beautiful senorita. Her father insisted that his daughter marry a brave goose, and that Gandy fight a bull in this decent Terrytoon.
Eddie Donnelly seemed to get a lot of retread stories to direct, probably because because story editor John Foster thought that a fellow van Beuren alumnus could bring a new touch to a Terry studios standard, last done in 1935 as THE BULL FIGHT. It had been a common practice at van Beuren also, with titles like GAY GAUCHO and HOT TAMALE.
The point is that this sort of cartoon was redone every few years, with technical advances taking most of the interest for someone who does an intensive study of these things. For someone looking at them in theater release, there was a vague sense there had been something like this a few years earlier and this was a bit better; the next one, in another few years, would likely be even better. And they were right.
