Storyline

Count Screwloose and J.R. the Wonder Dog share a house. Screwloose hogs all the pancakes at breakfast, so to get even, the dog pastes a picture of a pretty woman over the hag advertising for a husband. Screwloose answers the ad, and soon finds himself chased by the spinster, who keeps telling the minister to wait. They finally get married, and the dog thinks he's going to get a meal to himself when the Screwloose family, including all the kids, moves in. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Wanted: No Master is a purely hilarious Milt Gross cartoon
7 June 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This cartoon is so full of fast-paced "anything goes" humor that some things that would normally be now offensive, like putting something looking like blackface on a white character and having him talk in stereotypical "black talk" of the time, actually adds to some of the hilarity of a dog (J.R. the Wonder Dog) trying to get rid of his master (Count Screwloose), because of how he keeps hogging the food at home, by getting him married to a rich frequent widow with loads of children. Despite the fact that the widow is homely, the dog fools his master initially when he pastes a classic beauty picture from another page over that of the widow's without him knowing. Milt Gross was probably an acquired taste at the time so one can't blame MGM for only letting him make two cartoons for them. Too bad, he'd probably be a cult figure today...
