Trivia

The dramatic structure, with a sinisterly toned narrator addressing the protagonist ("You think you've gotten away with it, don't you John?"), is a take-off on a then popular radio drama series, "The Whistler." See more »

Talk about self-fulfilling prophecies!
11 August 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This cartoon (the title is a play on the film title "Each Dawn I Die") is one of the better Elmer Fudd solos the did. It concerns a rather foolish rooster, the hazards of jumping to conclusions and the danger of inattention. The narration is excellent, visual gags are here in abundance and the payoff is a scream for everyone but John Rooster. It's usually a good idea to be aware of your surroundings. A delightful little short. Well worth looking for. Recommended.
