Laurel And Hardy Cartoon Commercial

A Swedish bananna commercial from the early days of sound film.

Rebloggerd from

This commercial for "Fyffes Bananer" (Fyffes Bananas) was animated in the beginning of the 1930s. It was ordered by the Swedish Banankompaniet and behind the witty animation was most probably Arvid Olsson.
Olson's commercial referred to film and popular entertainment in an interesting way. First and foremost it was a commercial, adapted to the new talkies, where the synchronized song of the drawn figures was the main attraction. The singing male quintet consisted of film stars like Laurel & Hardy and Adolphe Menjou, with his sharp profile and well cut moustache. In the middle was a singing Maurice Chevalier, the elegant guy with the straw hat, seen in so many films.
