A little boy tells the story of his dog, Bartholomew. One day, Bartholomew's tail was run over by the wheel of another boy's scooter. Consumed with rage, Bartholomew instantly detested wheels and tires and chased and bit into all wheels he could find, including the wheel of an airplane, which took him to the Sahara desert!

One of the stranger WB cartoons...
7 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is definitely not your usual Merrie Melodie cartoon. In fact, you can tell it's going to be different when you see the modern 1960s abstract WB opening and closing sequences (which features a weird arrangement of "The Merry-Go-Round-Broke-Down," whereas the normal 1936-1964 Merrie Melodies theme is "Merrily We Roll Along!") When I first saw this on Cartoon Network's "ACME Hour," I was really surprised by this cartoon. The animation is a bit similar to Hanna-Barbera, and the drawing style is reminiscent of James Thurber's illustrations. (UPA tried doing a Thurber-type cartoon back in the 50s, "A Unicorn in the Garden.") The backgrounds are crude crayon-style, and the music is not your definite Looney Tuney music (hey, they didn't have Carl Stalling anymore!) When I first saw it, I thought the animators must have been sick or something like that and couldn't draw like they usually do. However, the story is SO CUTE! It is one of Robert McKimson's finest cartoons of the 1960s.
