Storyline

Mama hen takes her chicks out to breakfast, but little Wilbur can't get any worms. Finally, a big worm escapes, and he runs after it; meanwhile, the rest of the family has gone inside to escape a thunderstorm. Mama realizes Wilbur's missing and goes after him, just before the weasel (hidden behind a tree) gets him. He's caught a cold and is put straight to bed. Mama runs for the doctor; the weasel disguises himself as doctor Quack and the chicks open the door for him. Wilbur sneezes off the disguise and they recognize Willy the Weasel. The chicks prepare for war: bottle-cap helmets, popcorn ammo. The weasel corners Wilbur, who sneezes in his face and gives the weasel a sneezing fit. His powerful sneezes, among other things, blow the pages out of a book, which closes to reveal the title Gone with the Wind. Wilbur finally beans the weasel. Mama returns home with the real doctor, whose castor oil scares a revived Willy off. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

early "Home Alone" (but far cooler)
18 September 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

An interesting example of the Termite Terrace crowd's early days is Tex Avery's "The Sneezing Weasel". The cartoon portrays a hick member of the genus Mustela* - voiced by Avery himself - who can't help but laugh at his own ridiculous comments after he catches sight of a chick. When the chick has to stay home sick, the big guy dresses up as a doctor and enters the house. But when his cover gets blown, the chicks all gang up on him in what looks like a precursor to "Home Alone" (only it's much cooler here).

This cartoon didn't have as many gags as most of Avery's cartoons did (the main one was the book), but as far as I'm concerned, any Tex Avery cartoon is a good one. You'll probably enjoy it.

*Mustela is the genus to which weasels belong. The family is Mustelidae.
