User Reviews

 
One of many cartoons that was to use Of Mice and Men as an influence of sorts
6 February 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

Tex Avery was fond of using Of Mice and Men, or at least the characters of Lenny and George, as the starting pont for his characters in his cartoons. The title of this one is a play on Steinbeck's title and Willoughby is basically Lenny. The prize bit in a very good short is Willoughby's first encounter with a very puzzled bear! Well worth seeking out. Recommended.
