Hubie & Bertie's 2nd cartoon
10 October 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Along with Pepe le Pew,Pussyfoot & Marc Anthony, Hubie & Bertie are one of my favorite characters created by the late Chuck Jones (my favorite animator). I've recently watched (ande taped) this short on T.C.M.'s "Cartoon Alley;" they were showing the first ever three Hubie & Bertie cartoons, and this short was #2.

In this short, Hubie was brown, and Berite was grey; and also they'd convinced a slightly ignorant cat that he's a lion. I love the display of irony, when Hubie tells Bertie to put antlers (sticks) on the dog in Pig Latin, and Bertie didn't understand; the cat replies "He means the dog." Then Bertie gets it; And then later outside the house, upon seeing the dog (with sticks on his head), sleeping in his doghouse, he points out "MY! he's an awfully familiar-looking moose" (OH! the irony). Another scene I love, is when Bertie uses subliminal messages on the dog.

"You're a Gazelle...You are a Gazelle."
