This Cartoon "Bites"
6 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a cartoon warning about the evils of gambling, featuring The Gambling Bug, a creature I've never seen before in a Loony Tunes short. The bug - kind of flying ant - takes a day off and observes a big dog trying to talk a cat (which looks like a Dr. Seuss drawing) into gambling. The cat wants nothing to do with gambling, until the bug goes over and bites him.

They play for "penalties," and of course the cat loses. His penalty is "gesundheit." The cat goes back and loses two more times with other penalties.

This was really lame and not funny in the slightest. Why it would be included in a quality DVD "golden" or "spotlight" collections is beyond me.
