Nothing really new about this one, but it's a Tex Avery!
26 February 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

The basic themes and elements are nothing new-it's basically The Shoemaker and the Elves revisited. But Tex Avery had a tendancy to take the conventional and stretch and twist it into something quite odd indeed! This is not your grandfather's fairy tale! Chuck Jones once quoted Rafael Sabbatini to describe Tex Avery and I'll close with that here: He was born with the gift of laughter and a belief that the world was mad. That, my friends, I submit, is a description of genius and fits Tex Avery quite well. Well worth watching. Most recommended.
