Happy Days (film #14 on The Cartoons That Time Forgot: The Ub Iwerks Collection, Vol. 1 DVD (Image Entertainment, 1999)). [Category: Hollywood]

A bunch of kids buy an old clunker car from a con-artist for 50 cents and it gives them a fair amount of adventure. The highlight is when they stop at a gas station and order the runt of the bunch (who they call "Pinhead”) to fill the tires with the air hose. Pinhead uses an air hose from a device marked "HELIUM––FOR DIRIGIBLES ONLY" (another item for the Film Ephemera Museum of Quirky Devices!). This, of course, causes the car to fly. Other than that it's an ordinary, mildly amusing cartoon.

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