The Unbearable Bear is a very funny Chuck Jones outing
29 November 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

Having just seen a couple of Warner cartoons featuring a character named Little Blabbermouse, I've now watched another Warner cartoon with another mouse named Sniffles who now talks constantly. He's one of several elements that make this Chuck Jones entry a very funny outing. Among others are a British fox trying to rob a house, the police cop bear who arrives late after another drink at the bar, and his wife who sleepwalks and is threatening to hit her hubby with a rolling pin. All those three people I just mentioned end up in an elaborate chase that shows how good Jones is at this kind of thing as he later proved with the Road Runner series and the Bugs/Daffy/Elmer shorts. And Sniffles, usually a gentle person, provides some hilarity when he bangs a gong or turns on a radio which he mistakes for a combination lock. On that note, The Unbearable Bear is a cartoon short well worth seeing.
