Storyline

While doing their respective yardwork, the fox and crow (next-door neighbors) overhear a radio broadcast encouraging everyone to "love thy neighbor". The fox concludes, "I'm going to love my neighbor... if it kills me!" The crow tends to make a nuisance of himself as he borrows the fox's lawn mower and destroys it. Next, he borrows everything in sight the fox owns for an upcoming "Birthday" (at which point, the fox destroys his radio). The fox installs a security system but the crow still arrives at his house through an underground route. Finally, the fox travels to the Southwestern U.S. desert planting his home atop a high rock pillar... but the crow still returns. At this point, the fox freaks out borrowing something from the crow... "Some feathers 'cause I wanna be an Indian!". The naked crow concludes that the fox is "a mental case".

Mr. Moocher was a way excellent Fox & Crow cartoon from Columbia
16 June 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

Just watched on Daily Motion as linked from ThadBlog this hilarious Fox & Crow cartoon from the Screen Gems cartoon studio. In this one, the Fox lives in a nice house and yard while the Crow next door lives in a ramshackle shack. On Fox's radio, the announcer advises to "love thy neighbor". The Fox decides to do so "even if it kills" me, which isn't easy since the Crow wrecks his lawnmower and keeps "borrowing" things for his birthday party! I'll just stop there and just say how things keep on building from beginning to end and I just couldn't stop laughing. Kudos to writer Sid Marcus and director Bob Wickersham for such a perfect cartoon which one doesn't usually expect from the Columbia animation unit. So on that note, I highly recommend Mr. Moocher.
