What it is: Little Lulu cartoon

Little Lulu plays hooky in order to go fishing. Will her conscience bother her?

I think I’ve covered one of the Little Lulu cartoons before, so here’s another one of them. This one gets its fantastic content from a dream sequence in which Lulu dreams of the great things that will happen if she goes back to school and the horrible things that will happen if she continues fishing. We see angel and devil versions of her having an argument about what she should do, and there are talking schoolhouses, dancing letters of the alphabet, and three singing stars with the faces of Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Jerry Colonna. It’s one of the more interesting of the Little Lulu cartoons, though it is probably one of the preachiest.
