The Queen Was in The Parlor

The Queen Was in the Parlor is a 1932 Merrie Melodies short directed by Rudolf Ising.


When the king returns to his castle, he questions where the queen is. He is told that she's in the parlor, and won't be seen. He goes to his throne, and his jester arrives Goopy Geer. Eventually a black knight arrives and threatens a young lady in court. Goopy attempts to battle him with an ax, then with armor made from kitchen utensils, and lastly butting with a mounted animal head, which results in the black knight losing all of his armor. He repairs it and runs away.



The version shown on Cartoon Network's Late Night Black and White cut the scene of the line of knights saying "The queen?" to remove the appearance of the last one, who is a Jewish caricature.[1]
