My feet are crooked!
18 March 2010 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

While Tex Avery was working for Warner Bros., he directed a series of cartoons centering on spot gags. "Hamateur Night" was a typical example, although the content matter reminded me more of what Friz Freleng's cartoons portrayed. The cartoon depicts a gaggle of second-rate amateur acts in a movie theater, and the audience gets to decide who's the best. As it so happens, Elmer Fudd's prototype Egghead is in the house. Hmmm...

So yes, it's the average silly cartoon from 1930s Warner Bros. - complete with some politically incorrect material - but I was laughing the whole way through. There's never a dull moment in any Tex Avery cartoon. I sure hope that Leon Schlesinger appreciated how much Avery made audiences laugh. Really funny.
