Jasper in a Jam (film #1 on George Pal Puppetoons (Loonic Video). [Category: Sleaze & Outsider]

Jasper gets caught in a pawn shop at midnight and thus gets to see all the musical instruments come to life and play a hot jam session. After he gets through being scared, he starts to play along––turns out he plays a pretty hot clarinet. Eventually, all the noise bothers a wooden Indian (let’s see how many ethnic groups we can offend, shall we?) who traps Jasper on a totem pole and starts heaving hatchets at him. The whole thing is stopped by a passing cop who, of course, sees nothing. Another fun Jasper cartoon with lots of jiving inanimate objects.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
