YMMV / I Love to Singa

  • Ear Worm: The titular song. If you watch this short, be prepared to sing-a about the moon-a and the June-a and the spring-a for the rest of the week-a.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Owl Jolson's father only approves of his son's singing when he's about to benefit financially from it. He only encourages his son to sing the way he likes to ensure he takes home the prize. Try not to think about how he would've reacted if his encouragement came too late and the kid still lost the contest. There's also the possibility that Owl Jolson's father was encouraging it anyway, regardless of whether Owl Jolson won the contest or not, which would avoid this problem entirely.
  • "Weird Al" Effect:
    • This cartoon would almost certainly have been forgotten had an audio sample of it not been used by South Park.
    • This short was a parody of the then-popular film The Jazz Singer. The animated short has lived on as a classic however The Jazz Singer has not. It's largely a silent film (though it is known as "the first sound film" due to the singing), it is not in color, and even most damaging to even classic film fans is the infamous blackface scene. I Love To Singa has received Values Resonance while the film it parodies is a product of its time.
