Storyline

Forest-dwelling possums, Ma and Pa O'Possum, are frustrated with their son, Junior, who is hanging from a tree by his tail, sleeping, instead of doing his chores. Pa dresses like a dog to suddenly awaken Junior and scare him, in the hope that this will teach the young possum a lesson. Even though the precocious Junior is not frightened in the least by Pa's disguise, he runs away and leads his dad on a chase through the forest. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

mission im-possum-ble
6 November 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

One of Robert McKimson's miscellaneous cartoons features a pair of hick possums trying to get their lazy son to do chores, to the point where the father dresses as a dog to scare the tyke...but the little guy turns out to be the Road Runner of possums! Two of McKimson's one-shot cartoons that come to my mind feature animals not usually seen in Warner Bros. cartoons. Aside from "Sleepy Time Possum" there was "Swallow the Leader" (starring swallows). I wonder what was up with that. Whatever it was, this is still worth seeing. Watching McKimson's cartoons, I notice that his characters have really prominent mouths, as opposed to the prominent eyes in cartoons by other directors (compare the Bugs Bunny in Chuck Jones's and Friz Freleng's cartoons with that in McKimson's cartoons).

All in all, the possum-bilities are limitless.
