Cinderella Meets Fella is a 1938 Merrie Melodies short directed by Tex Avery.


In an update of the Cinderella story, when the fairy godmother is late, Cinderella calls the police, and they find her in a bar. Her first attempt at making the pumpkin backfires, and instead she makes Santa. Cinderella goes to the ball and meets Prince Charming. They dance and spend time together. When midnight strikes, she runs off, and Prince Charming is able to find her house, but when he gets there he finds a note that tells him that she got tired of waiting for him, and instead, went to a Warner Brothers show. She appears from the audience, and the two go to the tenth row.




  • This was the final cartoon with the mid-1938 opening theme, which was used starting with "My Little Buckaroo".
  • Cinderella in this cartoon bears a slight physical resemblance to Little Red Riding Hood from "Little Red Walking Hood", another Egghead cartoon which Tex Avery directed the previous year.
  • The EU dubbed release of this short alters the ending theme to the 1938-41 version of Merrily We Roll Along. The HBO Max release also ends with the 1938-41 theme.[4]
