The End of the Hook
23 April 2017 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A man who marinates and cans herrings for a living dreams he is on trial for his crime in this amusing Columbia cartoon.

The modern viewer may have some problems with many of the gags offered, as well as the voice choices; that is because the trial sequence takes place in a fishy version of the popular radio quiz show, INFORMATION PLEASE: it would send cash and encyclopedias to people who sent in questions that its panel of experts could not answer; and columnist F.P. Adams was fond of dragging in baseball trivia at any excuse or none. Both bits are referenced.

The is the sole theatrical director credit for Dun Roman. He was mostly a writer and would work on Jay Ward's Rocky & Bullwinkle cartoons.
