Storyline

Crumley Cogwheel has been buried in the accounting department for twenty years. When Mr. Blunt, the company president, asks his secretary to send Crumley to his office, her response is: "Who's he?" He's a shy, timid little man with no guts, according to Mr. Blunt. And that's not the kind of person Michigan Nuts & Bolts wants working for them. Why, he asks Crumley, in all the twenty years he has worked for the company, has he never once asked for a raise? Blunt demands that Crumley demand a raise. But the timid little nobody can't muster up the courage, even with the boss standing over him and shouting for him to do it. The boss gives Crumley an ultimatum: ask for a raise within the week, or he's fired. Written by J. Spurlin

Crumley Cogwheel was another highly amusing Paramount Modern Madcap cartoon
30 March 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this Paramount Modern Madcap cartoon on YouTube as linked from Cartoon Brew. In this one, the title character is sent to the president of the Michigan Nuts and Bolts company. This boss has kept his eye on Cogwheel for the last 20 years and wonders why he never asked for a raise. He gives him one week to demand one or he's fired. So Crumley goes to a psychiatrist who tells him to get a new look by shaving his mustasche and getting a wig since he's bald. Unfortunately, he's mistaken for someone else by his boss and gets thrown out! So on the last day, Crumley gets drunk and walks in his boss' meeting. When he belligerently demands his raise...I'll stop there and just say this was a pretty amusing cartoon from writer Irv Spector and director Seymour Kneitel. The voices of the boss and Crumley are those of Eddie Lawrence who is good at the different characterizations. His Cogwheel brings to mind early Woody Allen especially during the gibberish scenes. What I just described were pretty amusing so when the punchline at the end comes it really hits a wallop! So on that note, I highly recommend Crumley Cogwheel.
