Storyline

A variety of fanciful innovations in "future" T.V. sets, including a model with a built-in stove, and a number of highly interactive models. And of course, even with dozens of channels, there's nothing on...or more accurately, there's nothing but the same Western. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Tex Avery sends up television

Tex Avery did a series of cartoons where he poked fun at things by showing how some aspect of life would be in the future, his target here being television. Interestingly, Avery was not fond of television, viewing it (somewhat correctly) as the enemy. Television is largely what killed the theatrically produced cartoon. So to a degree, Avery's barbs are less good-natured than usual in some cases. Devastatingly funny, its good that this one is in print. Highly recommended.
