This travelogue across America is filled with sight gags such as the 'Old Reliable' geyser spitting into a spittoon, cliff-dwelling Indians who walk horizontally up and down the faces of cliffs to get to their homes, and a Texas cow puncher who really punches cows. Also featured is Mr. Butter Fingers, a 'human fly' who climbs the outside of the Empire State Building.Written by

Back when Tex Avery first did this cartoon, studios regularly produced short subjects in abundance. One of the most frequent and popular types was the "travelogue" which Avery so effectively nails here. The same droning voice-over and cutesy style used here without that big a stretch for parody's sake. Tex Avery sight-gags aplenty. This cartoon spawned a mini-boom in cartoons (not all by Avery) sending up travelogues. As usual, Tex was there first and was the best! One second left on the clock, here comes the alley-oop-it's a touchdown and the band goes wild! Highly recommended.
