I Wanna Play House is a 1936 Warner Bros. cartoon directed by Friz Freleng, Scored by Bernard Brown and animated by Cal Dalton and Sandy Walker. This cartoon is notable as the first with "target" titles which would mainly be used in the Merrie Melodies cartoons until 1964.


Two bear cubs, one brown and one black, sneak away from Papa Bear to enjoy a game of hide-and-seek. The black cub goes into a Gypsy trailer and gets drunk on cider. The little bears' harmless hijinks soon turn into danger on the runaway wagon.
