“Time Marches On”
Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 24, 2004
Catch-phrase of the popular March of Time radio show and newsreel, which dramatized leading events of the week. Variations on this theme can be seen in Don’t Look Now (Avery, 1936) as the cuckoo clock snickers “crime marches on”, in Page Miss Glory (Avery, 1936), and in Let It Be Me (Freleng, 1936), as one of the intertitles. “Time Munches on” is also used in Porky’s Romance (Tashlin, 1937).
