The Fox and the Crow
17 April 2015 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

The Fox and the Crow each believe the other is a criminal with a $5000 reward for his capture. They each attempt to win the reward in this watchable entry in the Columbia cartoon series.

The Fox & Crow series dates from Frank Tashlin's brief tenure as head of Columbia's cartoon department in 1942. It soon settled into a good series emphasizing cartoon violence. This one handles the individual gags well, but there is an uncertainty in the arc. The gags should start small and grow larger with each iteration, as in Tex Avery's KING-SIZED CANARY. Here, however, they grow to a certain size and then collapse in scope. The result is a cartoon that is certainly enjoyable to watch, but nothing special.
