Boulevardier from the Bronx is a 1936 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Friz Freleng. It is a parody of St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Dizzy Dean, and is loosely based on a song of the same name which was featured in the 1936 Warner Bros. musical film Colleen. The cartoon is notable as the first Merrie Melodies cartoon to feature the signature theme song, Merrily We Roll Along, which continued to be used for the Merrie Melodies series through to 1964. This is also the very first Merrie Melodies cartoon to feature a blue WB shield in the opening titles.
