As do many of the early animated shorts, this one ranks fairly high on the weird-o-meter when compared to the classic cartoons of later years. The original names of these characters were Tom and Jerry, not Dick and Larry as the title card indicates. Apparently, Van Beuren Studios re-released the 1930s cartoons featuring these decidedly non-cat and mouse characters in the 1950s with different names. Gee, I wonder why? Anyway, demonstrating that music does have power to change lives (one way or another), from the Internet Archive and 1932, here are "Tom and Jerry" in Barnyard Bunk.
