Preceded by thunderous crashing from the jungle, a little black bird with a syncopated hop emerges from the brush to mystify big-game hunter Inki as he attempts to track down his prey: a ferocious daddy lion.
Popeye is wooing Olive on the phone when Bluto comes over. He overhears, taps into the line, and impersonates Popeye. They proceed to have a high-wire fight on the telephone lines outside Olive's house.
I love it! It is a great short and one of my favorite cartoons from Chuck Jones' early years of directing at Warner Bros. Chuck Jones is my favorite animator along with Max Fleischer, and also I love foxes. But you know, I thought there is no such thing as a silver fox. I thought they are mystical, fantasy creatures like flying-horses, dragons, mermaids and such; but I guess I was wrong.
I love how the fox is depicted in a very effective, sinister silhouette as he sneaks up on an unsuspecting farmhouse; that was great stuff! And I also love the escape scene too. Excellent work, Mr. Jones, we will miss you.
