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>

Excellent cartoon from Robert McKimson
10 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

McKimson may not be quite among my favourite animation directors, but there is still much enjoyment to be had in his cartoons. Wild Wife is no exception, a couple of the attitudes I agree are outdated but that aside it is excellent. The animation is bright, colourful and crisp, with some of it also entertainingly wacky. The music has so much wit and energy and the way it is orchestrated is just beautiful, and stylistically from Carl Stalling it is very distinctive. The dialogue and gags are not what I call hilarious but they are funny and never dull things down, while there are some very sharp and interesting observations on 50s everyday life. The characters carry Wild Wife brilliantly, especially the title character, while Mel Blanc and especially Bea Beanderet characterise to perfection. In conclusion, excellent if not my favourite McKimson cartoon. 9/10 Bethany Cox
