The Home Fires Burning

“So long, Betty,” says Betty’s house after Miss Boop and a witchy looking Mother Goose fly out a window. “I’ll keep the home fires burning.” And he does. The house catches fire and burns to the ground.

It’s because of a gag like this that I love the old Fleischer cartoons. Of course, the home is completely intact at the end of the cartoon.

Mother Goose Land’s credited animators are Doc Crandall and Seymour Kneitel.

  1. Not even Popeye and Bluto could put that blaze out that fast (as demonstrated in "The Two-Alarm Fire").
