One of several cartoons using the need for quiet as a springboard for typical Avery bedlam
27 December 2000 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

More than once, Tex Avery used the idea that it was in someone's best interests to maintain quiet and someone else wanted the opposite. Here we have a bear with an almost pathological hatred of noise (except his own). Efforts to maintain quiet result in sight gags galore of the usual variety in an Avery cartoon and are very funny. The bear steals the cartoon. Most recommended.
