"He might've been mixed up but he wasn't dumb."
5 August 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

All the Termite Terrace greats who made such wonderful cartoons with the characters like Bugs and Daffy also from time to time made other cartoons that allowed their genius to shine with a freedom they might not have with the franchise characters. Chuck Jones in particular made many great cartoons like that. Here's one for Robert McKimson, an often underrated animation director who did a variety of work with almost all the classic Looney Tunes characters but is best remembered (by me, at least) for his work with Foghorn Leghorn. This is a charming story about a dog named Bartholomew who develops a vendetta against wheels after a boy on a scooter runs over his tail. The short's narrated by the dog's owner, voiced by child actor Leslie Barringer. The animation is intentionally crude and appealing in its childlike innocence. The colors are gorgeous. The music is some of the best from any short Bill Lava had anything to do with. It's an adorable cartoon that's fresh and smart. Both kids and adults should like it. I think it might be McKimson's best work outside of the Foghorn series.
