Storyline

Bobo the Elephant is baseball team mascot for the lean and meek Sweetwater Shnooks, all of whom are rendered unconscious by their opponents, the husky and brutal Greenville Goons. The Shnooks' manager, rather than forfeit the game, decides to bring in Bobo to play every position - and he does rather well! Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Neither an elephant nor a human can forget this cartoon.
1 April 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Clearly, the Termite Terrace crowd always liked to find ways to put wacky spins on everything. It seems like sports were a prime target, as "Screwball Football", "Porky's Baseball Broadcast", "Baseball Bugs", "My Bunny Lies Over the Sea" and "Gone Batty" identify. This one portrays a baseball game between a big, aggressive team, and a small, pitiful team. While it looks pretty one-sided at first, the small team throws a wrench in the works by having their elephant mascot play.

I at first got the feeling that Warner Bros. used this cartoon in their Looney Tunes compilation film "Bugs Bunny's Wild World of Sports", but that baseball sequence didn't feature an elephant. Oh well. This is still a pretty funny cartoon, if not the funniest. Robert McKimson and his cohorts obviously just wanted to have fun (apologies to Cyndi Lauper). Maybe working for peanuts isn't as bad as we might expect.
