Boiled Beef certainly sounds like it could be a Texas town.
26 September 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Yes, it was partly the average good-cowboy-chases-vile-desperado story, but you can't deny that Friz Freleng's "My Little Buckeroo" has some really hilarious gags (namely the escalator). As I found it on YouTube, I assume that this must be of the early works from the Termite Terrace crowd that got kind of lost under the prominence of their work from the '40s and '50s (to be sure, it has the Blue Ribbon reissue logo in place of the credits). While my favorite cartoons certainly came from the '40s and '50s, I do find it neat to see these before-they-were-famous entries.* Worth seeing.

*Another really cool before-they-were-famous instance occurred in "The Beatles Anthology" miniseries: there were recordings that John, Paul and George made from about 1958-1961. I know that it doesn't make much sense to talk about The Beatles when reviewing an early Looney Tunes cartoon, but I just like to do these sorts of things.
