George and Junior decide to get a legitimate job as dog catchers. The problem is that Junior is afraid of even the tiny (and surprisingly fierce) dogs. George tries dressing as a female dog to lure the dog to the truck; when that fails, he tries dressing both him and Junior in a giant cat suit. Then Junior tries a mouse trap baited with a hamburger from George's lunch and catches George ("a bad thing"). Finally, they dress as fireplugs and get far too much attention.

One of Tex Avery's George and Junior shorts and possibly the best of them.
12 February 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

Tex Avery only created a few continuing characters. This short features a team he developed, George and Junior, patterned after the lead characters in Of Mice and Men, which was a fairly frequent source for inspiration for not only Avery, but other cartoon directors as well. George and Junior aren't too funny in and of themselves, but rather they serve as foils and/or victims for situations and sight gags that are thrown at them. Characters weren't terribly important individually to Avery, what happened around and to them was. Thus, the closest he came to doing a popular character and using them over and over himself, was Droopy. Somewhat ironic, given his role at Warner Brothers in the early years in developing many of the mainstays of the animation department. This is a very good short and fortunately, it's in print. Well worth watching. Recommended.
