In this, the first of more than three hundred cartoons that Isadore 'Friz' Freleng ever directed, we see no sign of his future greatness -- although he does use one of his favorite gags, of some one entering one door and then exiting another, unrelated door later. This was one of the Oswald the Lucky Rabbit cartoons that were produced for Charles Mintz after he cheated the rights to the cartoon character out of Disney and then lost them, in turn to Universal Pictures. It is, so far as future efforts are concerned, no better and no worse than the others of this period, with Oswald, as co-directed by Rudolph Ising, simply another frenetic clown, doing the same sorts of cartoon shticks that cartoon firemen would do for another ten years.
