Pop Goes Your Heart Review
Pop Goes Your Heart is a 1934 animated short film from the Merry Melodies series. It seems to be coming from a different studio.
It is such a such a shame that Merry Melodies’ second Technicolor short is basically a Disney film as everything about it screams Silly Symphonies. We basically follow a bunch of animals who have their daily routines while singing and dancing. I am frustrated when Warner Brothers did this as they are great when being themselves and not copying others.
The film also features a weaker Technicolor than in ‘Those Beautiful Dames’. It is okay, but nothing remarkable. Some parts are more memorable than others, but most of it seemed too standard and unremarkable to me. The only aspect that is definitely Merry Melody-like is the music and thankfully its titular song is fun and catchy.
Pop Goes Your Heart has a lack of identity and never seems like a Merry Melody which was frustrating.
