Early Tex Avery finger exercise
9 November 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

I admit I'm biased in Tex Avery's favor and never saw an Avery cartoon I didn't like. In this one, Avery was still finding his style. There are a few more coughs and sputters here than is typical of Avery, but even with that said, his average work is as good as or better than some directors' best work. Even Rembrandt had his off days. So did Shakespeare, I like this cartoon myself, but others may not. Worth watching. Recommended for Avery fans, certainly.
