Storyline

At a ramshackle cartoon studio, everyone goes home except one dedicated cartoonist drawing Beans's latest adventure. After dozing off, the gorilla-like, demon-faced beast he has drawn laughs evilly and pulls the cartoonist into the drawing. It's time for revenge. He and his ilk have made cartoon villains the chumps for years; but now, thrown into a cell filled with his own villains, he'll be the chump. The cartoonist is knocked about by Battling Barney the Kangaroo, a cruel octopus, Spike the Spider, the Mad Doctor, Villain No. 999 and others. They force the poor cartoonist to draw the pit into which he'll be thrown. But Beans, trapped behind prison bars that were meant to protect him, will save the day. Written by J. Spurlin

Beans Amuck
30 November 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Sort of a forerunner to Chuck Jones's more famous "Duck Amuck", "A Cartoonist's Nightmare" portrays an animator working on a Beans cartoon. He falls asleep and ends up in the cartoon, where the monster threatening Beans proceeds to menace the cartoonist. It's up to Beans to save the day!

This short, directed by Jack King (previously a Disney animator, he soon returned to Disney, after which Frank Tashlin took over his unit), came out right after Friz Freleng's "I Haven't Got a Hat", which debuted not only Beans but also Porky. If I remember right, Porky and Beans were officially a team (pork and beans, get it?). Needless to say, Beans quickly dropped off the radar, while Porky gained fame as WB's first bona fide cartoon superstar, although he soon got overtaken by a certain stuttering duck, and later by a wise-guy rabbit.

Anyway, this one's OK as a historical reference.
