Quirky Warner bros. cartoon one shot.
2 September 2000 | by (Somewhere in New Jersey) – See all my reviews

Screwy one shot in which a tiny elephant escapes from a banana boat and causes havoc on a town, raiding a doll-house , a bird-bath, and a circus, among other things. It's funny mostly for its surrealism , and not because of the humor. By Chuck Jones , the famous animator. He made a series of one-shots during the late-40s' to mid-50s', which this is one of.
