Typical Fred Avery tomfoolery
29 February 2004 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This early Tex Avery effort, made way back when he was still calling himself Fred, already features his crazy trademarks. The whole cartoon is just a collection of crazy sight gags one after another. On this plane trip to Africa (via Ireland), airplanes fly like birds, sound like trains and dance to music. Shadows move like they have a mind of their own, Mount Rushmore get a (at the time) topical joke and even the sun and moon get in on the act. Strangely enough there are no references to W.W.II.

During a musical interlude Patrick the Irish man (who looks amazingly like the young Sean Connery in "Darby O'Gill and the Little People", 1959) does the old gag with the hair on the lens. Patrick and the first African natives we see are roto-scoped, but they soon make way for some politically incorrect stereotypes. When Fred Avery directs nobody is safe: Ostriches are portrayed as the stupid birds they really are, butterfly's are used for fart jokes and on the retour trip to America the merry go round went down. Don't worry if you did not get that last one, neither did I when I saw it.
