It's a Tex Avery film during his time at MGM....'nuff said.
28 August 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

A slick rooster from the big city, Charles (whose voice is an impersonation of Charles Boyer) woos Clem's girl--winning her with promises to take her to New York and give her lots of clothes, clothes, clothes. She agrees but finds out he's nothing but a big dumb jerk. And, when Clem arrives in the city to reclaim her, Charles spends most of the picture punching Clem in the face. It's not exactly the deepest MGM cartoon I've ever seen, though Tex Avery's direction helps with this plot immensely. His goofy sense of humor and silly sound effects get the absolute most from the plot. While it's not one of Avery's better films, even a sub-par outing during his MGM era is a must-see! Well worth your time and if you don't enjoy this one you are probably dead!
