A short for Fox lovers
20 October 2007 | by ja_kitty_71See all my reviews

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.
