Storyline

Chilly Willy is freezing in his igloo home (he lives in Coldernell, Alaska) and burning everything he owns in the fireplace to keep warm. He notices an ad for the local fur factory and realizes that warmth is only a visit away. Unfortunately, it is guarded by a rather unexcitable watchdog who foils Chilly's attempts to steal the furs. Finally, he locks every fur in the storage bin but this doesn't stop Chilly who starts eyeing the watchdog's fur and makes various attempts to remove it from him.

I'M COLD (Tex Avery, 1954) ***
3 March 2008 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

This Chilly Willy cartoon was included on Universal's 3-Disc THE WOODY WOODPECKER COLLECTION; I hadn't yet checked out this set but decided to watch three entries from it regardless, given that they were directed by Tex Avery.

The amiable penguin is feeling cold in his igloo and decides to raid a fur warehouse close by – but, with the place guarded by a smart (yet laid-back) bear, it's not going to be an easy task.

This may not be one of Avery's best efforts, but the constant gag invention in the central battle-of-wills situation ensures a delightful seven minutes or so.
