Alaska is an interesting early Walter Lantz Oswald cartoon with some material from Tex Avery

Author: tavm from Baton Rouge, La.
7 March 2008

I discovered this rare Walter Lantz Oswald cartoon on a blog that was dedicated to the 100th birthday of Tex Avery whose milestone was sometime in late February. It concerns the lucky rabbit who was originally created by Walt Disney (hence his resemblance to Mickey Mouse since he came before him) looking for gold but soon becomes a gag fest with a singing waiter who ends his verses with someone "who cannot leave his mother", a piano player who keeps chugging beer, and Oswald and his peg-leg buddy (probably Peg-Leg Pete who eventually became Mickey's nemesis) saying in unison "Pop Goes the Weasel" with the rabbit getting the better of this buddy after he keeps hitting him. Alaska was one of the early cartoons Avery had thought up gags for and they're pretty funny as presented here. Worth a look for any animation fans of Fred "Tex" Avery.
