Tex Avery at the top of his form!

This cartoon is just great! Lots of sight gags, a fair number of topical gags framed on the war and life on the home front and the most entetaining fairy godmother to come down the pike in quite a while. Another "fairytale" cartoon by Avery that is ribald and lecherous and pokes fun at everything, including itself. Tex Avery was incredible. The bit with the jeep is beautiful! The swimmers make the final turn, they're coming to the wall-it's a world record! Recommended!
