Storyline

A theatrical dog decides to answer the call of the wild and hunt for his food. He targets two polite twin gophers as his first conquest and tries to kill them with a falling-rock trap hooked to a radish patch, then plots to attract them into range of his clutches by dressing himself like a baby, then by playing music. The gophers foil all of these schemes and trap the dog in his own piano as they play the keys, which are linked to hammers whacking the dog's rear. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Shall We? Surely!
9 June 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Art Davis ran Warner Brother's fourth cartoon unit for a couple of years until shrinking budgets due to competition from TV forced its closure and he returned to animating for almost twenty years. It was a pity. I think his cartoons averaged much better than Bob McKimson, who had seniority.

In any case, this is one of Davis' "Goofy Gophers" cartoons in which Mac and Tosh (voiced by the ubiquitous Mel Blanc and the uncredited Stan Freberg) very politely torment the well-spoken dog who was their usual opponent. It is the usual collection of sadistic gags, perfectly timed and animated, as you might expect. The contrast between the gophers' punctilious behavior towards each other and their violence with their enemy makes this very funny.

You may wonder why this cartoon has this title. There's no particular reason. "Two Guys from Texas" was the title of a Warner Brothers movie starring the popular team of Jack Carson and Dennis Morgan that year. They didn't put a lot of thought into naming these things.
