Fun Fact: $50 in 1941 was the equivalent of $822 in today's money.

RIP Kent Rogers, who did all of the male voices (save for the impersonation of Jerry Colonna, which was done by Mel Blanc). Incredibly, Rogers was only SEVENTEEN years-old when he did these impressions in 1941. He joined the Navy during WWII and was killed in a training flight at the age of 20. Incredible talent, gone too soon.

Marvel: 'Infinity War' is the most ambitious crossover event in history. Looney Toons: Hold my beer.

Rare lampooning of pre-WWII Hollywood in cartoon form. But in some cases you had to know the background stories to fully "get" the satire.

3:11 outchhh....😂😂😂.

The first stars seen are Claudette Colbert, Don Ameche, and, at a table behind them, Adolphe Menjou and Norma Shearer, followed by Cary Grant, seated alone Then Greta Garbo comes along selling "cigars, cigarettes, butts." In the next scene Edward G. Robinson asks Ann Sheridan, "How's the Oomph girl tonight?" She responds by uttering the word "Oomph" several times. Her final "Oomph" surprises him. (She was a sex symbol known as the "Oomph" girl in those years. The camera then tracks past some tables: the first one has Henry Binder and Leon Schlesinger sitting there as an in-joke, while the soundtrack quotes "Merrily We Roll Along" — the theme to the Merrie Melodies series. (Schlesinger was producer for the Looney Tunes cartoons and Binder was his assistant.) The camera shows some other tables which are reserved for people: Bette Davis, a large sofa for Kate Smith (a well known singer at the time, noted for her ample girth), and the last table is reserved for comic strip (and movie and radio) characters: Blondie, Dagwood, and Baby Dumpling, with a fire hydrant for Daisy the dog. Johnny Weissmuller leaves his overcoat behind to reveal his Tarzan outfit, Sally Rand (famous for her striptease acts and fan dance), leaves her trademark feather "fans" behind and leaves presumably naked. In the next scene James Cagney informs Humphrey Bogart and George Raft that they must prepare to do something risky. They, all known for their "tough guy" roles, get ready, turn, and start pitching pennies. Harpo Marx, usually the prankster in the Marx Brothers films, sticks some matches under Garbo's foot, then lights them. She reacts very slowly and coolly to the pain, a parallel to her serene and cool acting style by slowly saying, "Ouuchhh." Then Clark Gable spots a girl, whom he follows with his head turning around 180 degrees (He was known for his womanizing). Bing Crosby introduces the first musical number by conductor Leopold Stokowski. Stokowski. Dorothy Lamour is seen sitting at a table with James Stewart. Tyrone Power dances with Sonja Henie, known for her ice-skating movies. The Three Stooges poke and smash each other in rhythm to the beat and Oliver Hardy dances with two girls at the same time; Cesar Romero dances with Rita Hayworth. . The camera then cuts to Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland sitting at a table. He asks his "father", Judge Hardy (Lewis Stone), for a favor. Sally Rand (identified as "Sally Strand") performs the bubble dance. William Powell, Spencer Tracy, Ronald Colman, Errol Flynn, Wallace Beery, and C. Aubrey Smith Kay Kyser (a well-known band leader at the time, nicknamed "The Professor". A group of men look, whistle in unison, and exclaim, "Baby!" They are William Powell, Spencer Tracy, Ronald Colman, and Errol Flynn. Sitting down are Wallace Beery and C. Aubrey Smith. Peter Lorre,. Henry Fonda enjoys the act too. J. Edgar Hoover says "Gee!" several times as a pun to his function as G-man. Boris Karloff, Arthur Treacher, Buster Keaton, and Mischa Auer watch the spectacle without any emotion, which was typical for their film roles: Ned Sparks, another famous movie "grouch" asks them if they are having a good time. Jerry Colonna reacts in excitement to the act and utters his catchphrases "Guess who?", and the camera reveals an invisible character next to him: "Yehudi!" ("Who's Yehudi?" was his famous catchphrase, referring to a violinist he could never find, hence an "invisible man".) Finally, Harpo Marx shoots the bubble with an improvised slingshot. It bursts and Strand is shown wearing a barrel underneath. "She" turns out to be Groucho Marx in drag — "Well, fancy meeting you here!"

I remember watching this episode a few times as a kid in the 70's. It was one of my favorites. Times were simpler then with 5 or 6 channels on TV.
First Last
1941: Let's make a joke about taking out a loan for a $50 dinner. 2019: $50 dinner? I'll have 2.
The Mad Gentleman
Bing Crosby Jimmy Stewart The Three Stooges Hardy (but no Laurel?) Groucho Marx Humfrey Bogart. Those are the only characters I recognize here.
Date Masamune
When I watched this as a kid, I had absolutely no idea who any of these people were. XD
Mortimer Mcbride
This seems like one of those weird dreams. Later you don't know how to explain it

That cigarette lady is all twisted up on opiates.
kstewskis
Who thumbs down Looney Tunes??? Just wow...this cartoon is classic!!
Raymond Steen
Like the scene of where James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart and George Raft played toss the coins. Also when Clark Gable stalking somebody who turned out to be Groucho in disguise LOL!!!!
jason4275
*That poor cigarette girl just completely dead on the inside.*
Alex Evans
I love old cartoons but this one is creepy lol 😂
Paul
I guess being a Boomer has it's advantages. I recognize pretty much every character in this cartoon. It wasn't really meant to have a plot, just poke fun of the personalities of the time. And in case the joke was lost in time, the gag with Bing Crosby and the horse was he'd founded the Del Mar Racetrack for horse racing in the late 30's and it'd become quite the sensation (distraction) for him. The Bing Crosby Stakes began in '46.

3:19 Are we all gonna ignore the fact that the dude can turn his head 360 degrees
Eve
2019? This will forever be a classic. :)

Holy fucc. THIS was the episode that freaked me out as a kid

So happy to be born in the eighties... Growing up in the 90's.😍
Masmosaic1
@ 7:00 - 7:07, funny how J. Edgar Hoover would be saying "GEE, GEE, GEE!" which would later mean "GAY" for him, as he turned ot to be in real life!
Thomas Scott
Adjusted for inflation $50 in 1941 Would be $871.06 in 2019
Dannetta Thomas
Thank you for this, my family and I are right now trying to name each character, and so far the women are winning!!!!! Lol lol
Rabah El Aawar
Loved the Weissmüller impression... Undressing his suit to reveal Tarzan 🤣
J wilson
I feel like if I knew these people, it would be way more funnier
Nater from decatur shoop
I swear, you can replace all these actors with modern equivilant.
Zach White
Their character drawing and jokes still make me amazed at the quality. It’s just incredible
Blabla Blabla
Creepy looking characters, accurate or not.
eddie b
Was this the only time Cagney. Robinson, Bogart, and Raft were in a film together?

"Oh, poor ignorante me can't recognize classic movie stars and therefore I'm incapable of laughing at a single joke." - Almost every dummy in the comments. Get a grip, kids. There were movies before 1970, you know?
Billy LegumbreS
I've nevee seen something so goofy...yet classy.
Lampy
6:31 I haven't seen such a beautiful bubble since I was a child 😂
I Dont Like You
Too bad I’m 28 and maybe too young to catch any of the references in this...but I love the animation lol
Christian Bauer
Most of these were probably a lot funnier if you knew the context.
ErwalDeeas
I miss these. Great era that unfortunately won’t get played and lost on a generation.
Daniel Holmes
Hollywood , Los Angeles, or New York .
Mixey
I havent seen such a beautiful bubble since I was a child
Julie Crawford
Every one of those folks in the restaraunt is iconic. I wonder if anyone today even knows a single one. Change isn't hard to live with, when you're young. Status quo isn't hard to live with, when you're old.
Afsara Mehrin
The Three Stooges at 4:58 🤣🤣🤣
Henry K.
Clark Gable tho🤣🤣😂
Skip Skylark
This is why Looney Tunes started cropping humans heads out of each picture...
Regis Dabney

mafiososamgiancana
7:04 is that supposed to be that fbi cheif which the mob blackmailed for years?
PimPlayer69

Out of the 46 stars caricatured, Mickey Rooney was the last survivor until his death on April 6, 2014
Enrique Moreno
Nice!, but Idon´t know why, but according to the credits, this cartoon comes from MCMXLII that means 1942, not 1941. Thanks!
MRT THE GAMER
I recognize Buster Keaton at the Table
Barry Bend
We need someone to reanimate this like the Dover boys short.
Friends Rachel, Monica,Phoebe, Joey, Chandler, Ross
The guy in the middle at 2:41 through 2:46 looks a little like Danny Zuko from Grease like if u agree
Rob McLean
$50 in 1941 = $835 in 2017!
Akumaa2000
I was wondering what was the name of this cartoon, glad I found it....thanks for uploading, another looney toon classic.
Brian Boley

Leave it to Harpo Marx to burst Sally's 'bubble' LOL!
Diana Rendon
Sadly now ALL of them have passed on, I believe Rooney was the last one of these folks left before he passed on.
Duane Locsin
I know there are classics, but the animations of real people look kind of creepy.
Am Marvelous
I feel like I shoulld know these people but I am.. I got no clue.
re575817
I remember this when I was young. It was funny then, it is funny now. All of those great icons of the big screen. All gone now. An era gone by and we are lucky to have a chance to enjoy it.
bighispanic92
I only caught a handful of references in this one, my knowledge on 30s-40s is limited AF.
SweetAmber
I feel like most Millennials won't even recognize half the names or faces or these people ...cause I don't - a Millennial

I am only 38 years old and I know than #JhonnieWeismüller is the best #tarzan

Chico & Zippo disliked this video because they weren't asked to be in it! XP
Suncat
Omg thank you for dragging this outta my memory!!
Jackson Langford
this is so creepy and odd and surreal. I love it
Matthew Bane
I remember this animation from way back in my childhood, we had it taped off see, and it still looks incredible. I'm not as hard on the 3d animation as most folks these days, but you can't beat the marvel of these hand drawn caricature. Imagine the time and effort, if you will, that it took to make this marvel. Incredible.
Wolf Moon
This animation is AMAZING I love it. ^^
Daniel Holmes
Clark Gable ?
Looki Loo
So "Miss Rand" was reference to Ayn Rand?
DJ Moch
"HENNNNNNRRRRRY! HENRY FONDA!" "Coming, Mother!" **Yank!**

6:32 "I haven't such a beatiful bubble since I was a child." MAN I WISH I COULD POP THAT BUBBLE.

6:25-6:35 a dirty joke😂👀
dadders6
It's annoying that they cropped it into a fake 'wide screen', which means lots of the original image is missing.
Jonathan Pruch
Ann Sheridan: “oomph! Oomph! Oomph!” 😂😂😭
Katrina Moor
3:11 'cause she's already a "burned-out" waitress, get it?
Avery Bloom
