Storyline

A harried housewife is criticized by her male-chauvinist husband, who remarks that she doesn't make effective use of her time during the day and insinuates that she doesn't finish her chores because of laziness. The wife replies by telling of a typical day plagued by a troublesome vacuum cleaner, a long wait in a bank, bulk purchases at a department store, and a parking ticket imposed after city workers suddenly installed a fire hydrant next to the space where she had parked. When her husband refuses to be sympathetic about her long and difficult day, she takes a rolling pin and gives him a swift whack on his head. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Wild Wife is a great Robert McKimson cartoon
1 January 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this Warner Bros. cartoon on YouTube. In it, husband John (Mel Blanc, of course) asks his wife Marsha (Bea Benaderet) if she's done various chores. When she replies "no" on the lawnmower question, he tells her she doesn't do enough work during her free time. Marsha rebuts with a tale of what her work day entailed...Director Robert McKimson fills this day-in-the-life-of-a-housewife premise with lots of hilarious verbal and visual gags that keeps building until the much deserved finale. And the stylized '50s design that was probably UPA-inspired is perfect here. And music director Carl Stalling, as always, provides many familiar music cues-like the "Powerhouse" score by Raymond Scott which is my favorite-their suitable moments in the short. So for all that, I'm highly recommending Wild Wife.
