Storyline

Charlie decides not to pay a professional to wash his windows, convinced he can do things just fine by himself. Again, Charlie is revealed to be mistaken. He actually gets more windows broken than he does washed! He also spends a great number of time falling into the swimming pool, usually because of Junior. Finally, Charlie flips out and breaks the only unbroken window, then slips on Junior's skateboard sending the entire family to pool's bottom! Written by Matt Yorston <george.y@ns.sympatico.ca>

Window Pains is an awful Walter Lantz "cartune" starring the Beary Family
19 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

Though I remember watching some Beary Family Album "cartunes" on the "Woody Woodpecker and Friends" show in Jacksonvile, Fla., this is the first time, courtesy of YouTube as linked from the Saturday Morning Blog, that I actually watched one in its entirety. And I wished I hadn't! Made during the '60s when almost any cartoon made during this time would suffer from low budgets and almost no comic timing, Window Pains has the male father bear decide to wash the windows himself after calculating the total cost of having a professional clean all 22 of those things. Big mistake especially when he asks his skateboarding teenage son to help. Like I inferred, despite the disasters that come, nothing funny happens because of the clumsy slapstick that just is too predictable and stupid to even be amused by. What a waste of the voice talents of Paul Frees and Grace Stafford who happens to be producer Walter Lantz' wife! I think I've said enough so on that note, I do not recommend Window Pains.
