Storyline

For her birthday, Andy presents his sweetheart, Miranda, with her usual present, candy and flowers. Miranda complains she wants something decent for her birthday like a fur coat...which Andy can't afford. A con man tells him he doesn't need money. He sells him a tracking hound and tells him he can hunt for the fox himself. Unfortunately, the fox Andy and his hound find has no intentions of being caught. Eventually, Andy does capture an animal to make a fur stole with. It's not the fox but, rather, something that's more of a surprise. Written by Matt Yorston <george.y@ns.sympatico.ca>

First Catch Your Fox
24 July 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Miranda wants a fur coat for her birthday, so Andy goes fox-hunting with a red-headed foxhound in this very good Andy Panda cartoon.

Director Dick Lundy seems to have envisaged a Screwy Squirrel scenario, but even though the general attitude seems to suggest that wackiest of Tex Avery characters, there are enough outrageous sight gags to keep this one moving along, including a couple that I haven't encountered before -- check out the one in which the fox is hiding in the tree. This one is a real treat.

For some reason, the body of the cartoon begins with half a dozen bars of "The Woody Woodpecker Song". Were they trying to turn it into a general theme for Lantz cartoons?
