It's a Dog's Life
11 October 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A donkey tries to join WAG -- the dog army -- in their war against the fleas in this Famous Studios Noveltoon.

The donkey is clearly modeled on "Spunky", the younger donkey in the Fleischers' "Hunky & Spunky" series from the late 1930s. Although most of the gags go to a Scotch Terrier, the outline of the story will be obvious to anyone who is familiar with Famous' later "Casper the Friendly Ghost" and "Baby Huey" series: Spunky is not accepted because he is not a dog, but in the actual battle he proves to be crucial to the victory and so is accepted. This one is a little cute for my taste and I've seen too many Casper and Huey cartoons to be impressed.
