One of a series of cartoons describing the future of a particular aspect of everyday life

Tex Avery did a series of cartoons describing the future-here he describes what the "Car of Tomorrow" might look like-in typical Tex Avery fashion, it is the starting point for some sight gags galore fired rapidly, one after another. There is some verbal humor in the narration, including one joke reminiscent of Death Race 2000! The best of the "Tomorrow" series, it's an often hysterically funny short. Runs on Cartoon Network fairly often. Recommended.
