The HoneyMousers
18 January 2009 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

The principal gag in this one is that the two lead characters -- who are mice -- are drawn and voiced as Ralph Kramden and Ed Nortion (Jackie Gleason and Art Carney) from THE HONEYMOONERS. There had been several Termite Terrace efforts in this vein, including A TALE OF TWO KITTIES (Abbot & Costello, the introduction of Tweety Bird) but McKimson brings little to this but the conceit.

Although a very competent cartoon director, Robert McKimson suffers a bit because Friz Freleng and Chuck Jones, who ran the other two cartoon units at Warner Brothers in this period, were geniuses. I have the impression that he wanted to move to live action directing, as had ex-Schlesinger cartoonist Frank Tashlin (and earlier, Gregory LaCava), but never got the chance.
