Although the premise of this cartoon is extremely simple - a luckless magician wreaks revenge on an obnoxious opera singer with an all-powerful wand - Avery's handling makes it soar. The jokes come thick and fast, the transformations never stop being funny and not a single frame is wasted. Sadly, this cartoon will probably not be shown uncut on television again, hilarious as the gag involving the Inkspots-style vocal turn undoubtedly is
it's politically incorrect! Luckily, MGM did issue this and several
other vintage Avery classics on video in the early 1990s, so my advice to you is seek 'em out and laugh your socks off.
