Storyline

Pooch, the irascible little fox hound, is terribly disappointed that his father won't allow him to join the fox hunt. Pooch is itching to get himself a fox, but he doesn't even know what one looks like. A certain conceited fox takes advantage of the situation by tricking the naive puppy into believing Jack Beaver is a fox. Unfortunately for Pooch, the splinter-spitting beaver is more than a match for him. Written by J. Spurlin

Dull, slow-paced cartoon seems to have about one-fifth the number of gags of a typical contemporary Warner Bros. short and one-tenth the number of different backgrounds

This dull, slow-paced Screen Gems cartoon seems to have about one-fifth the number of gags of a typical contemporary Warner Bros. short and one-tenth the number of different backgrounds. Mel Blanc voices all the characters in the overly talky script: Pooch sounds like an angry Bugs Bunny, Jack Beaver like Marvin Martian and the fox like Wile E. Coyote. But he can't make the bland dialogue sound like the sharp, witty lines he got over at Warner's. The animation is okay, but the fox's provocative tail-wagging, which makes him look as if he is trying to seduce the puppy, is more strange than funny.
