Fresh Fish Review
Fresh Fish is a 1939 animated short film from the Merry Melodies series. It is a weak short.
It is one of those Merry Melodies where we have a narrator who explains stuff and we are to be acquainted with a culture or this time around a setting which is the sea. The film showcases life of the fish and it follows various groups of fish with the only highlight being that fish teacher with the rest being all boring and forgettable.
The narration is okay and not too annoying. The animation is definitely solid with pretty good character design. But the score is forgettable and the film fails when it comes to humor and action as it is boring and never at all funny as it has no gags whatsoever. It is an old-fashioned Merry Melody with all that comes with it.
Fresh Fish is one of those narrated Merry Melodies which are okay, but dated and not particularly entertaining.
