Another of Avery's looney looks at the "future", this time farming

This cartoon is a fairly funny look at the "future" of farming-a future that most farmers are probably grateful hasn't come in a great many respects! Typical of Avery, sight gags galore are fired at the viewer non-stop, with more puns than normal and more lunacy than usual. Good Avery, though not great Avery, even for the series of shorts this fits in with. Worth watching.
