Being a Tex Avery cartoon, I wasn't surprised this was clever and had
some laughs. Tex was one of the best.
This baseball story is played at "W.C. Field." (We then see a disclaimer stating "The guy who thought of this corny gag isn't with us any more.")
The game pits "The Yankee Doodlers" versus "The Draft Dodgers." As you can tell, this one is REALLY corny....but it sure is fun to watch. It's another of those baseball cartoons that mainly feature the pitcher, his assortment of pitches, and problems with the batter and umpire. This one also has a strange, "sad" ending!
This animated short was one of the features in the Jimmy Stewart baseball movie, "The Stratton Story" DVD.
This short is full of sight gags and is much more entertaining than the typical major-league game today, which is all about home runs. Tex Avery was in full form here and the ending is typical Avery. I love it and think it's hilarious, myself. Some of the gags are a bit dated, but it's great fun and I'm glad that this is in print. Well worth watching. Recommended.
