Tex Avery was the master of spot gags, but Bob Clampett also did well
12 December 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

One of the many early Merrie Melodies cartoons existing pretty much as an excuse for a series of narrated sight gags, Bob Clampett's "Farm Frolics" is noticeably tamer than "The Isle of Pingo Pongo" or "A Day at the Zoo", but still provides its fair share of laughs. It's pretty much the same kinds of jokes as Clampett's "Crazy Cruise" the following year. Granted, the jokes are fairly hokey. In my opinion, Tex Avery was the master of spot gags, and Bob Clampett reached his all-time apex with "The Great Piggy Bank Robbery".

Still, you gotta imagine how this stuff must have seemed the first time that moviegoers ever watched it. I figure that they very likely cracked up (or at least guffawed). And you'll probably at least chuckle at the gags. Worth seeing. Just came out on DVD on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 5.
