you can see why football is such a violent game

7/10

In one of the many early Looney Tunes cartoons not featuring Bugs, Daffy, Porky or Elmer, a football game gets as wacky as possible. Even though I've never been into football, "Screwball Football" is still really funny, just because they never repeat a gag, so the whole thing keeps coming at you.

I understand that Tex Avery's cartoons were a semi-inspiration for "The Mask", and one can see it here with some of the tricks. Some of what happens is actually a little bit predictable, but how they pull it off makes it all worth it. Available on the Looney Tunes website.

That was a pretty crazy baby!
