The wolf takes the grandmother's wand, then the grandmother has it back with no sign of her grabbing it back. She didn't require physical activity, to retain her wand, that was stolen, because she has magical powers of a fairy-godmother or a witch, in reality, to retain the wand. See more »

Tex Avery at the top of his form!
This cartoon is just great! Lots of sight gags, a fair number of topical gags framed on the war and life on the home front and the most entetaining fairy godmother to come down the pike in quite a while. Another "fairytale" cartoon by Avery that is ribald and lecherous and pokes fun at everything, including itself. Tex Avery was incredible. The bit with the jeep is beautiful! The swimmers make the final turn, they're coming to the wall-it's a world record! Recommended!
