Best Of This Type Of Narrated Cartoons I've Seen
8 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Usually, when you see the date of a Looney Tune as being very early 1940s and you immediately hear the voice of narrator (usually Robert Bruce) you almost can be assured it won't be the normal wild, wacky and humorous cartoon you're expecting. They were very corny in the early '40s and most of the humor just isn't there as it was by the mid '40s and the end of World War II.

There is no central character, such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck or Porky Pig in these above- mentioned type of 'toons. They are usually are just a series of quick gags on a subject: fairy tales, different places in the world or - such as in this one - life on a farm. I would this one, however, better than the others I've seen. At least the gags had some humor, enough to at least produce a few smiles.

The rural scenes are beautifully drawn and look great on this "restored" Golden Collection Volume Five DVD set. Also, some of the gags - if you know classic-era performers - aren't bad, such as a horse imitating Eddie Cantor or a dog reading Dick Tracy in the Sunday newspaper comic strips or the birds building a FHA-approved house.
