The bouncing ball scene from the cartoon.

Status: Partially Lost

Screen Songs were animated cartoons produced by the Fleischer company (known for making the Betty Boop series). They were a continuation of Fleischer's own Sound Car-Tunes. The theater run was very limited (36 theaters), but it was a long run, lasting from 1929 to 1938.

Mr. Gallegher and Mr. Shean is a 1931 installment in this series featuring Al Shean of the comedy duo Gallegher and Shean.[1]

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

During this short, Al Shean is the only star of the show because Gallegher had unfortunately died in 1929. He sung their famous theme song," Mr. Gallegher and Mr. Shean", with a bouncing ball allowing the audience to sing along too.

Availability[edit | edit source]

This film is lost and has been for years. It was rumoured that Jack Miller, a character actor, had performed the role of Gallegher. However, according to a review on IMDb by a man who claims to own a 35mm print of the film, this is not the case.
