Various saints are logging details of everyone entering Heaven, but because they're a bit out of touch with early 1950s slang, they come up with some very strange impressions of a recently deceased young man's life when he describes it to them.Written by

Symphony in Slang is a clever MGM cartoon created by the surrealtic Tex Avery. Which also the short is also surrealistic. They find a dead guy on heaven tell his story to Noah Webster and they don't get his language (slang). Things like "I was with a silver spoon in my mouth" or "I was really in a pickle, the proprietor drew a gun on me, but I gave him the slip, and hid in the foot hills". It's very creative. Tex Avery has always been a great creator of animation.
