After Tashlin accepted Columbia's offer to head their cartoon department, he brought his Termite Terrace Sensibilities to the place and turned out a mixed bag of cartoons -- some brilliant like THE FOX AND THE GRAPES and some merely very good, like this one about a big bulldog who steals a cocker spaniel's dog license in order to avoid the dog catcher's wrath.
When he went on to become a live action director, Tashlin directed some of the most cartoon-like movies you ever saw -- particularly when working with Jerry Lewis. Contrariwise, when directing cartoons, Tashlin always included some extreme perspective shots -- look for the one where the conscience is fighting with the little devil.
