It's Sad To See A Complete Character Go So Early
14 November 2011 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Although Beans can be spotted moving in Plane Dippy, this cartoon marks his last regular appearance. After watching a few Beans films, I knew the cat was something more complex than the hog who stole the spotlight from him. I can only wonder what kind of perception film viewers had back then. Whatever they were thinking, it makes me wish Beans had a much longer run than he actually had. What a pity, considering he was groomed to be a star. The cat was a complete package of cuteness, funniness and adventure.

In this film, we have Beans and his friends who traveled west in their wagon train. Beans advices Ham and Ex that if they spotted any Indians, they should come and warn. However, the pups began making false alarms, triggering hysteria at the wagon fort. Eventually, the Indians did show up, therefore adding to the thrill. One thing about this short film is that it gives a good illustration of American history.

If I were a producer working under WB, I would come up with a TV series. There, I would revive Beans. Porky would also be included, and those two will be cast as best buddies.
