Good Yosemite Sam Short
26 December 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Yosemite Sam marries a wealthy widow, despite finding her unattractive. Afterwards he realizes what a mess he's gotten into as the woman is an abusive nag who physically forces him to do housework. She also has a gigantic son named Wentworth (who Sam refers to as a "prehistoric horny toad"). In typical Looney Tunes fashion, the big bruiser likes to play rough and poor Sam becomes his personal plaything.

Great voicework from Mel Blanc and June Foray. Mel was a genius and this short provides lots of proof for that. Love the bit where greedy Sam first meets the widow and is instantly turned into a blubbering mess by her homeliness. Another great scene is when Sam throws the ball into traffic hoping the giant kid will be run over, only to have the whole scheme blow back on him. Being that it's one of the later efforts from Warner Bros, you'll notice the animation isn't the greatest. Stylistically, I prefer the earlier more traditional animation over the sketchy "backgrounds look like they were drawn by a child" stuff that appeared everywhere in the '60s. But, at the end of the day, some of these later shorts were funny enough to overcome the crude animation. This is a remake of an earlier Daffy Duck short called "His Bitter Half." Both are good but Sam brings a certain something to it that I prefer. He's one of my favorite Looney Tunes characters and I like seeing him get he spotlight.
