Near the End
31 October 2009 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Columbia's Fox & Crow series derived from the brief period when Frank Tashlin was in charge of the studio's cartoon department. He directed the classic THE FOX AND THE GRAPES, based on Aesop's fable, and then shortly thereafter moved on. The series survived until the folks at UPA had one crack at it in the late forties, and for some reason the comic book derived from it seems to have lasted into the early 1960s. At least I remember noticing it as one of those kiddie comics I avoided, preferring the Marvel Silver Age material.

In any case, the series quickly settled down into a decent routine, in which the Fox was a rich sissy and the Crow -- voiced by Paul Frees -- was a moocher. This formula was eked out, usually well enough, by random gags.

In this one, the Fox orders in a feast from a delicatessen and the Crow manages to eat everything. There are a couple of good big gags, and the one at the end is quite amusing. While no classic, it is very funny.
