A movie may be playing in theaters now called SAUSAGE PARTY . . .
2 September 2016 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. . . but that animated feature is thoroughly Mixed Company compared to THE ART OF THE GAG, a Looney Tunes documentary which confronts its viewers with a Daisy Chain comprised of 17--Count 'Em Up, Yes, 17!--exclusively male links in its Ring of Wursts. Don't forget that these mostly ancient geezers have bragged during OTHER "Behind the Tunes" bonuses that they literally had "hundreds" of ink and paint "girls" working for them at "Termite Terrace," Warner Bros. animation headquarters at which females apparently were seen, but not heard. Women generally live longer than men in America, so there most likely were scores of female witnesses available in 2006 to testify about an allegedly Bon Vivant work place of which one elderly gentleman says in GAG that "It was like Playtime all day long, though we'd take a work break once in a while." Clearly, unsung anonymous females did the lion's share of the Worker Bee labor at Looney Tunes, while these Termite gents lounged around, bragging about how little THEY themselves actually did.
