Mary: [seeing a depressed John land in the hangar] Any luck today, John?
John: No, Mary, same as yesterday. I went to every airport in town, and they just don't have any use for an old, burned-out B-29.
Mary: Nonsense.

Mary: You can fly as well as any of those newfangled airplanes. Did you tell them of your wonderful war record?

John: Yeah. I even showed them my purple heart.

The best of Tex Avery's cartoons giving human characteristics to inanimate objects

This cartoon was nominated for an Oscar, which is welcome although a bit puzzling, as this is a prototypical Tex Avery cartoon-take something ordinary, twist it in some odd or extraordinary way and fire sight gags at the audience for the bulk of the cartoon. Avery often gave inanimate objects human traits, as he does here and this is a marvelous cartoon, but he did at least a dozen that were as good or better that weren't nominated. Which proves that the Academy Awards process is as much chance as anything else. This shows on Cartoon Network often. Recommended
