Piloting Towards Texas
14 August 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Tex Avery co-directs his third film for Lantz, still uncredited. He would soon jump to Schlesinger and begin a career that could be called "distinguished", except it's inappropriate. So let's call him a genius and be done with it.

In actuality, the director of a cartoon is more akin to a producer than what we would call a director for a live-action movie. He sets the stage for the animators and allows them to execute their sequences. Given that there is no exact equivalence and the credited director was head of the studio, let's consider the film.

It's about Oswald and his dog who go out quail hunting. Oswald takes a nap. The quail don't take things lightly and counter-attack. It can be viewed as an early version of Avery's later THE CRACKPOT QUAIL, but really, it's like all those cartoons in which Elmer Fudd goes hunting and runs into Bugs or Daffy. The result is a movie that is very good, but is more interesting for where it would lead.
