Oh, Belvedere...Come here boy!
14 July 2004 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

One of the best one off shorts from Looney Tunes. Yes, it features Charlie the Dog once again trying to find a home, but Belvedere and the Colonel are one of a kind characters who aren't too fond of Yankees or Yankee Pot Roast.

Aah, magnolias! Charlie puts these two through the ringer trying to replace Belvedere as the Colonel's pet. One of the rarely seen Looney Tunes cartoons during this new age of political correctness. Why are great new cartoons like The Simpsons, South Park, and Family Guy seen as smart and irreverent, but older cartoons like this seen as demeaning or degrading? I can only hope that this great cartoon will eventually hit a DVD collection before some other format comes along and they have to start all over again.
