Tex Avery sends up Red Skelton again.
20 November 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

Tex Avery apparently liked using Red Skelton, or rather his characters and catchphrases, in his cartoons. In this one, "Lem Kadodlehopper" is Skelton's character, Clem Kadiddlehopper. The expressions, speech patterns, the whole bit. How Skelton felt about this, I don't know, but I suspect he took it in stride. Skelton was a popular source for animators, particularly the routine they borrowed from most, The Mean Widdle Kid. The catchprase, "If I dood it, I'll get a whippin'" is used often, in whole or in part. Actually, being parodied in cartoons is a compliment and an indication of popularity, because animators used things that audiences would easily recognize and enjoy, as an inside joke or a hook to get audiences into the cartoon. This cartoon is loaded with sight gags and has not one, but two, running gags. The one with the steer is more a Tex Avery kind of gag and is funnier, at least to me. The steer is also a typical Tex Avery character and has the best dialogue in the short. Worth watching. Recommended.
