Quotes

Jimmy Durante Buzzard: I'm starving. No food in months. It's discouraging, that's what it is. Why, I ain't eaten in so long, even my stomach is talking back to me. Listen.
Stomach: [echoing] Send down one hamburger, everything on it!
Jimmy Durante Buzzard: You see what I mean? Hey, Joe, when's the last time you ate?
Joe Buzzard: Are you kidding?
[opens mouth; it has cobwebs and a sign that reads, "Closed for the Duration"]

At the end, the message "PATRONS ATTENTION" appears, followed by that same shot, with this voice over: "Ladies and gentlemen, your attention please. Due to the numerous requests received in the last five minutes, we're going to show you the steak again." See more »

Look out for the steak!
2 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

A very fast paced 'toon from the master of mayhem, Tex Avery

Nothing is sacred as fun is poked at all the wartime shortages as 2 buzzards search high and low for something to eat, fighting over the rabbit they have caught, the stone painted to look like a rib eye steak resorting to even eating each other, watch out for the "drooling time" allowed for the picture of the steak dinner. The 'toon is probably not politically correct in these modern times so it is doubtful if it will get shown on t.v today, but keep an eye out for it, it is available in the DVD format as part of a Tex Avery box set issued in France where Tex has a big following......Enjoy !
