A mangy cat on the verge of starvation finds a tiny canary and a bottle of 'Jumbo-Gro' fertilizer, which gives him an idea that leads to giant cats, dogs, mice and canaries chasing each other round Lilliputian towns and cities...
Henpecked Hoboes is another pretty good M-G-M Tex Avery cartoon
Just watched on Thad's Animation Blog this M-G-M Tex Avery cartoon. The stars are George-the bear father-and Junior-his oversize son. Junior's hungry so George tries to get his son a hen. First, he tries on a rooster suit which drives the hen love crazy but her husband in a jealous snit. George ties him in an over-sized rocket with the hen lighting a match. The rocket sends the husband rooster to the South Pole which results in him taking a long way back home. When George-still in the rooster suit-gets out of the log first, Junior hits him resulting in the first of several times George tells his son, "Bend over", with him kicking his son...Many of the gags that follow are quite funny and while the ending is not hilarious, it's still pretty good. Henpecked Hoboes was quite a good Tex Avery cartoon that I recommend to any fan of his who hasn't seen it yet. P.S. There's a blackface gag that may offend somebody in this PC-time but it's so brief that I had no shame in laughing at it.
