Quotes

Elmer Fudd as King of the Elves: A manufacturer who sticks to old equipment cannot compete, and must fail. To survive, he must persuade people to risk savings in his business. He can then buy new equipment, increase production, and show a profit.

Quasi-educational 'toon from Warners
22 October 2000 | by (Oakland, CA) – See all my reviews

Less a comedy cartoon short and more a hymn of praise to the merits of our capitalist society, there is exactly one laugh in the whole film. The rest is merely an extended textbook-style illustration of how "industwy" and "pwofit" motives work (in a style more typical of Disney, which did several of these types of shorts)--all of which sounds a little weird as explained in Elmer's voice. Sylvester's barely used at all.
