Who wants to spend all day stuck in a car?
18 June 2015 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Robert McKimson ventured into Tex Avery territory with "There Auto Be a Law", a blackout gag cartoon looking at the rise of cars. I laughed the whole way through, but the cartoon looks dated now that we're trying to move away from motor vehicles. Once upon a time owning a car was seen as symbolic of freedom, but before too long more cars meant more traffic jams, hence road rage (which we see in the cartoon). And that's not even counting air pollution. I can happily say that my city is expanding its light rail, including a bridge exclusively for light rail, pedestrians and bicycles. It would be best if the US had a nationwide high-speed rail system like Japan's bullet train. Extensive mass transit is the true sign of progress, not millions of cars.

But anyway, the cartoon's really funny. The meek motorist has a voice almost exactly like Bugs Bunny. Aren't we all destined to look over a four-leaf clover eventually?
