Storyline

B.O. Skunk finds himself attracted to various other animals, but one whiff and they run away. He tries some extreme techniques, including a Frank Sinatra impersonation; that gets the stage mobbed, but they still run away. Finally, he tries camouflaging himself as a fox, only to meet and fall for another skunk disguised as a fox. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

A romantic themed cartoon from Tex Avery.

Little Tinker (1948) is about a lonely skunk who's looking for someone to fall in love with. The Skunk is so desperate that even Cupid tries to help him "score" by enlisting his "Book of Love", Lil 'tinker does everything he can to find his soul mate. The cartoon is funny but sad and melodramatic. Watching him pull out every trick in the book trying to find true love.

Not as wild as most of Tex Avery's films. A quick change of pace for the

man. Showing that he's not all slapstick and parodies. Hopefully he

didn't give up on his bread and butter animation!

Recommended.
