Half-Pint Pygmy is another hilarious Tex Avery cartoon
12 June 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Half-Pint Pygmy has to be seen to be believed but isn't that the case with most Tex Avery cartoons especially the ones he made for MGM. George and Junior search for the world's smallest pygmy. When they do, he manages to elude them for most of the short! There are all kinds of gags involving alligator bags, hiding places for various animals, hitting the wrong fellows, and who's being scared of whom. And, yes, there's a stereotypical watermelon gag for the little guy. Still, with a cartoon this outrageous, anything goes! If you really want to see this, it's for now available on YouTube. I most certainly heartily recommend it as I would for most Tex Avery cartoons.
