Merrie Melodies Cartoons The Gay Anties

The Gay Anties is a 1947 Merrie Melodies short directed by Friz Freleng.

Title

The title is a play on "the gay nineties," the decade in which this short is set.

Plot

A colony of ants surreptitiously invade a young couple's park picnic in the 1890s and contrive to steal their food. The ants, frustrated three times in their efforts to make off with a sandwich, spread mustard on the back of the girlfriend's hand and trick the boyfriend into biting it. A female ant sings an overly melodramatic song, "Time Waits for No One", which gets the other ants to run for cover.
