A Tex Avery classic, a very clever takeoff on the Robert Service poem.
14 July 2000 | by (Anchorage, Alaska) – See all my reviews

This cartoon is vintage Tex Avery, including his classic barroom scene with the wolf's eyeballs bulging across the room toward the voluptuous dance hall girl. The cartoon is a clever takeoff on Robert Service's poem, "The Shooting of Dan McGrew".
