2 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We follows the misadventures of a 'gambling bug' who causes people and animals to gamble the lives away. Now THIS is the Robert McKimson that I know, totally and grossly incompetent and unfunny, I was getting worried when I was amused by the last two shorts that I've seen of his. This is a tired ham-fisted morality tale that has very few laughs makes this one of the worst Looney Tunes shorts that I've ever witnessed. It's just simply dreadful in every sense of the word. This animated short can be found on disc 4 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 1.

My Grade:D-
