Goofs

When the gophers are sleeping in the book, each of the gophers are covered by two pages the ham actor is reading from (the gophers' snoring causes the pages to fly up revealing them). The Ham actor then throws the book outside with the gophers still inside the book. The book then opens up after hitting a tree and and the pages previously covering the gophers have disappeared.

It stars Mac and Tosh--so it's obviously well worth your time.
6 March 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I have always loved Mac and Tosh, the Gopher Twins. They are cute and very wicked little characters from Looney Tunes that never fail to make me laugh--though they don't appear in this film until it is almost half complete.

The cartoon begins with a very snooty, Frasier Crane sort of dog who is tired of slapstick and low humor, so he leaves the Looney Tunes studio for good. His intent is to become a Shakespearian actor but unfortunately, he comes into contact with the gophers--and they make his life miserable. And, being that this dog is so full of himself and sophisticated, it's fun to watch him being taken down a few pegs by the little rodents. Well worth seeing like all the Mac and Tosh films.
