Tex Avery would have been pleased with this one.
6 December 2001 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This short was nominated for the Academy Award. All too frequently, one hears that something was done "in the tradition of..." or "In the style of..." and it usually is not a flattering comparison. This short is an exception. I had seen comments comparing this favorably to the work of Tex Avery and was not sure what to expect. Lo and behold, it is in, fact, a short that is chiefly sight gag after sight gag, fired rapidly at the audience without pause. Plotting is basic and second to the gags and the ending is vintage Avery. The first time I watched this, I was too busy laughing to make comparisons, but this is a short that could easily fit into the Avery shorts with nary a raised eyebrow and hold it's own with the best that remarkable talent produced. It's a fantastic piece and a good thing that it's in print. It can also be found on The World's Greatest Animation and is more than worth the effort to get. A great cartoon! Most highly recommended!
