Almost 20% of this animated short short's running time . . .
1 August 2016 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. . . is devoted to the opening credits. I counted 26 names credited in the first 21 seconds of this piece (which only has a duration of 128 seconds). That is more than three times the number for the similarly-themed classic Golden Age Looney Tune, WHAT'S OPERA, DOC?, which entertains us for nearly 7 minutes. When Warner Bros. shows still photos of its Looney Tunes crews from the 1930s through 1950s, these "Termite Terrace" gaggles are comprised of mostly anonymous women, who painted the cells (more than 24,000 for WHAT'S OPERA, DOC?). The names of all these ladies, as well as the "in-betweeners" and other significant groups, are lost to Posterity. Is Posterity any worse off? Not really. If WHAT'S OPERA, DOC? only ran 128 seconds, with 120 of those devoted to PORKY AND DAFFY IN THE WILLIAM TELL OVERTURE-style credits (needing to include far more names than those "slaving" over each cartoon in our far lazier Computer Age), I doubt that they could have lampooned Dick Wagner very effectively in the time of a rodeo ride on a Broncking Buck.
