A Bout with a Trout (film #7 on Disc #3 of TV Cartoon Classics DVD Boxed Set (Platinum Disc, 2005)). [Category: Hollywood]

Little Lulu plays hooky from school to go fishing. When a big catch causes her to knock her head against a tree and pass out, she has a really weird dream to the tune of “Swinging on a Star.” Cartoon dreams are usually pretty surreal, and this doesn’t disappoint. Somehow, this weird dream gets her to go back to school, but she’s still up to her old tricks at the cartoon’s end. I love cartoon dream sequences, so this gets high marks from me.

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