This MGM cartoon was voted Number One . . .
16 March 2016 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. . . back in the 1900s, by the Brooklyn Junior Arsonists League. RED HOT RANGERS tells the heart-warming story of an entire national park burning down while a couple of worthless rangers kick each other in the butt. It opens by showing 1,018 "No Smoking" signs posted next to each other at the park entrance. This on-screen clutter makes the park's prime directive not only a Big Joke, but also an intrusive eyesore that any True American would be dying to flaunt. And, wouldn't you know it, an American One Per Center in an expensive convertible immediately speeds past these signs. Next, the Rich Guy flicks his still-lit cigarette onto dry leaves and exits this story. That gives rise to a darling little dancing flame, who turns tree after tree into ashes as the park rangers mostly butt-kick, in about as repetitious and boring a fashion as you can possibly imagine. Since Warner Bros. has the DVD rights to John Wayne's TYCOON, it felt the need to augment this brief 129-minute yawner with a cartoon. However, Warner could not find a single one of its 1,039 Looney Tunes dull enough to please the TYCOON crowd, so it dredged up RED HOT RANGERS from its MGM film library.
