Storyline

Two polite twin gophers find that their home, a tree, has been cut down and taken away. They find it in a log pile about to be taken inside a processing factory. When they follow it into the factory, they become caught in the bizarre human machinery whose purpose, among other things, is to grind whole trees down to make toothpicks.

take solace in the fact that the 'goofy gophers' were never heard of again, at least
2 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two British gophers are storing their nuts for the weekend, when they find that much of their tree has been taken away which they have to find and bring it back. 'Goofy Gophers' indeed, try 'utterly lame never heard from again' gophers. I hold Looney Tunes shorts to a higher standard and when said standard isn't realized (or in this case even close), I'm sorely disappointed, and such is the case with this one. It just plain not the good at all and that saddens me a bit. This animated short can be found on disc 4 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 1.

My Grade: D
