Hoppity Goes to Town

Directed by Dave Flesicher. Starring Stan Freed, Kenny Gardner, Gwen Williams, Jack Mercer. (1941, NR, 78 min.)

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Tue., April 23, 2002

The second – and last – animated feature from Max and Dave Fleischer's animation studio is this look at a community of insects whose city garden home, Bugville, is threatened by urban developers, and how a plucky grasshopper named Hoppity saves the day and wins the heart of a bee named Honey. When this film first played theatres, it was a dismal box-office disaster, largely because of its release date: December 7, 1941, Pearl Harbor Day.
