The Major Lied ‘Til Dawn Review
The Major Lied ‘Til Dawn is a 1938 animated short film from the Merry Melodies series. It is a weak short honestly.
I get why some people may like this as the animation is nice, the travelogue, nature documentary style to it is charming and the British accents are a lot of fun. But other than that, the film is overly talkative, boring and never funny or exciting whatsoever. The score is also forgettable.
The characters are okay, but not too remarkable and even the elephant is not great. That ending was overrated in my opinion. Most people love it as it was changed from the usual end-credits as this time around the elephant said it, but it is not particularly memorable to make much of a difference.
The Major Lied ‘Til Dawn is well animated and voice acted, but bland, boring and forgettable.
