fox in jail
11 July 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Now that I'm old enough to understand what a lot of the classic Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies cartoons were saying, it's a good thing that I'm only seeing some of them for the first time. "Fox Pop" is a case in point. This one portrays a red-white fox hearing on the radio that foxes are quite popular among high society women, and so he deliberately gets himself caught in a trap, only to then learn that it's fox skins that the rich women want.

This was one of many indications that Warner Bros. cartoons weren't targeted at children; they preceded feature films in movie theaters where adults could see them. This one specifically has a rather dark subject matter, with only mild humor (would it be possible to use slapstick humor to show this topic?).

Anyway, it's an OK cartoon, but understand that it shows some tense things. Worth seeing.
