Aesop's Fables
12 October 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Director Chuck Jones and his best writer, Michael Maltese, produce a typically sardonic, funny and undeniably accurate cartoon version of Aesop's fable of the lion and the mouse, in which the mouse -- definitely a cousin of Hubie from the Hubie and Bertie cartoons -- cons the rather stupid lion into releasing him from danger several times, each time, shouting "Sucker!"

On the good side, we also have Jones' insistence on the consistent and believable psychology of the characters. On the downside, this one has not aged perfectly. There is a reference to wartime rationing in one of the gags, but the inventiveness of the variations on a theme will delight most cartoon fans.
