vacations work better when you take a map
14 August 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

OK, pretty much all great artists have to start somewhere. Chuck Jones's first star was the cute-by-any-measure mouse Sniffles. I can see why Sniffles eventually disappeared to make way for other mice in the in Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies cartoons (namely the fastest one in Mexico). In "Sniffles Takes a Trip", the little guy tries to take a relaxing vacation but ends up in the middle of the forest where everything disturbs him; why do vacations always seem to end up like this? My favorite scene is the POV shot looking at the duck (well, was it a duck or goose or swan? I couldn't tell). But either way, this cartoon was more of a place holder between better ones (1940 also saw the release of "You Ought to Be in Pictures" and "A Wild Hare", featuring the first true Bugs Bunny). In the off chance that you want to watch it, you can find it on YouTube.
