There's a little bit of Joe McDoakes in all of us
29 April 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Very funny Joe McDoakes short starring George O'Hanlon. This time Joe is suffering from various fears. He's afraid to tell the girl he likes how he feels, afraid to speak up to his boss, and afraid to say no to an annoying coworker taking donations. The funny thing I realized as I was watching this short was that, at some point in my life, I have been Joe McDoakes myself! How little some things change even after half a century. Anyway, Joe goes to a doctor seeking a cure. The results are pretty funny and the ending perfect. The Joe McDoakes series from WB was a good one with the underrated George O'Hanlon always making me laugh.
