Tex Avery + zoology = some really cool surprises!
6 August 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

If you've seen any of Tex Avery's cartoons from his days at Warner Bros., then you'll probably have an idea of what sorts of things "A Day at the Zoo" has in store. Specifically, the rabbits literally multiply, a greyhound is the other kind, and the (jail) bird and (stoolie) pigeon have a slight conflict going. But the main plot turns out to involve Elmer Fudd's prototype Egghead teasing the lion; how dumb do you have to be to do that?! Yes, it's a gag-nearly-every-second cartoon, the sort of thing that characterized the Marx Brothers' movies, Mel Brooks's movies, and flicks like "Airplane!"; these sorts of movies make no pretense about being completely silly. Thank you, Tex Avery! Available on YouTube.
