Good story, but...
3 October 2002 | by (Chile) – See all my reviews

This cartoon is an example of good stories done the wrong way. It seems that writer Lou Lilly (he wrote this short, NOT Warren Foster) suggested the idea of a little kid having to drown a cat but the cat manages to survive and heckles him then, sounds good so far, but they decided to go with the racial stereotyping, causing this cartoon to be shoved in the vaults. I believe they could have perfectly used one of the "regular" characters in this cartoon (this could have been a good time for Porky to show up), as the jokes themselves are not racist at all (except obviously for the gambling scene). The music is good, but nothing you haven't heard in any other Carl Stalling cartoon, the animation is good and filled with those facial expressions that only Chuck Jones made. All in all, a good short with a good story that may sadly never be shown on TV, the only public domain video that has it is called "Uncensored Cartoons", but since it seems to be discontinued, you'll have to work your way hard into the video stores if you want to watch this cartoon.
