"Freddy the Freshman" is a 1932 animated short film, directed by Rudolph Ising for Harman-Ising Pictures as part of Warner Bros.' "Merrie Melodies" series.

ynopsis

Freddy the Freshman, "the freshest kid in town" and a canine "big man on campus", crashes a college pep rally, and then proceeds to become the star of the big campus football game.

Background

The cartoon is built around "Freddy The Freshman, The Freshest Kid in Town", a song written by Cliff Friend and Dave Oppenheim and part of the Warner Bros. publishing library. Following its use in this cartoon, "Freddy The Freshman, The Freshest Kid in Town" would turn up as an incidental score cue (usually relating to football in some way) in many later Warner Bros. cartoons. The "Freddy the Freshman" cartoon short is today in the public domain.

Censorship

When this cartoon aired in the late 1990s on Cartoon Network's show "Late Night Black and White" (an installment show featuring black and white shorts from Warner Bros. and Fleischer Studios), the brief shot of the cheerleaders (three stereotypically Jewish birds - with beak noses and pennants written in Hebrew - and a rooster who acts stereotypically homosexual) during the game was cut.
