Storyline

City dweller Egghead dreams of being a cowboy, but his bouncing around gets him kicked out of his boarding house. He sees an ad for a ranch looking for a cowboy and applies. His tryout includes tests of marksmanship and use of a branding iron, but most of it consist of chasing down and roping a troublesome little calf. He passes the test, but the job isn't exactly what he dreamed of. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Trivia

Either on or by this cartoon (it's impossible to tell for sure due to Blue Ribbon re-issues), the Warner Bros. shield is now making its famous zooming-in sound, a steel guitar glissando effect created by Treg Brown. Also, the end of the cartoon's music no longer bleeds into the closing; instead, a closing theme is used (for Merrie Melodies, it's a shortened version of the opening theme; for Looney Tunes, it's a remix).

"Porky's Badtime Story", the cartoon that follows this one, is the first Looney Tunes cartoon with these changes. See more »

Tex Avery Strikes Again!
18 October 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

For all that this is not my favorite Tex Avery cartoon (Egghead is rather grating in this one), I haven't seen a bad Avery cartoon. This is rather early Avery and most of his signatures haven't been fully realized. The pacing of this one is slower than is typical for Avery, there really isn't a running gag here and there aren't as many sight gags as opposed to verbal gags. More talky than Tex Avery usually gets, but still a decent cartoon. Well worth seeing. Recommended.
