"Fair"-ly funny....
25 May 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cartoons have proved it time and again: nothing's funnier than natural enemies chasing each other.

And in "Fair and Worm-er", the whole cartoon is just one big chase, based on a simple premise of a worm trying to get to an apple. Of course, he is being chased by a bird, who is chased by a cat, who is chased by a dog, who is chased by a dog catcher, who is chased by his wife....

Well, you get the idea.

For the length of the cartoon, each character chases the other, sometimes one will conspire against another to aid themselves (i.e. - the bird thwarts the dog catcher so the dog will catch the cat and leave him free to get to the worm! WHEW!). Actually, it's all rather simple - just like the Roadrunner cartoons (also directed by Jones!) - but with the added input of a skunk thrown in for good measure, it can only help.

Ten stars for "Fair and Worm-er". Join the chase!
