Storyline

It's morning in the English countryside and time for the gentry to participate in their favorite sport: the fox hunt. The eccentric gentlemen come in all shapes and sizes, the fat ones putting the greatest strain on the horses. The craziest things happen to the monocled hunters. One even gets knocked off his horse when it jumps over a brick wall. He shoots straight up into the air and, thanks to a parachute hidden in his clothes, makes a gentle landing. But instead of the ground, he lands on a cow. Upset by her unwanted passenger, she takes off at top speed, finally dumping him in a mud puddle, where he lands on a pig and continues his wacky ride. Meanwhile, the poor fox finally gets trapped in a hollow log. Dogs to the left of him, dogs to the right! Luckily, the beleaguered creature gets help from a certain powerful, and pungent, friend. Written by J. Spurlin

Weaker Silly Symphony
20 December 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

One of the weaker Silly Symphonies, this one is quite enjoyable, but fails in a basic aesthetic rule of animation: if it could have been shot as a live-action short, then it doesn't need to be a cartoon, and therefore isn't a good one.

Now, you may disagree with this aesthetic rule of mine, and I won't dispute it too strongly. Nor is this a poor movie: the gags are strong and a fair number of them need to be animated, since the 'transformation' gags are clearly animation of gags. But there are plenty of live action fox hunts in the movies, and this could have been done that way. But it has its pleasures nonetheless.
