Jerky Turkey is funny cartoon from Tex Avery at MGM
An amusing Tex Avery cartoon made near the end of World War II. Basically, a pilgrim who doesn't want to wait in line goes to "Ye Black Market" building to get a live turkey. The turkey who offers himself sounds like Jimmy Durante. Various chase gags are executed like the one where the pilgrim paints on a brick wall outside scenery to fool the turkey. Turkey goes through that scenery. Pilgrim tries to chase turkey through only to smash himself. The kind of gag that would be more perfected in Chuck Jones' Road Runner cartoons. Many other gags involving modern gadgets follow. Highly worth seeing for any Tex Avery fan. Don't miss a final gag involving someone constantly carrying the sign, "Eat at Joe's"...
