The map shows only fourteen states in 1849 (the original 13 plus Florida and Vermont - it's unclear whether Maine is a separate state or still part of Massachusetts). By 1849, there were already five states west of the Mississippi River: Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas. See more »

With the exception of the Sloppy Moe character, 'Wagon Heels' is very good stuff
2 October 2016 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Bob Clampett's cartoons often were high in energy and fun and displayed a uniquely wacky visual style that one can recognise immediately. Porky Pig is often likable and amusing, if at times overshadowed by characters with stronger personalities.

'Wagon Heels' is not Clampett or Porky at their finest, but it is very good stuff all the same. Its only real debit is the character of Sloppy Moe, whose inept stupidity is so overdone that the character is never funny, in fact calling him dumb isn't enough to describe how insufferably annoying he is.

The animation is excellent. The colours are gorgeously vibrant, even nearly 80 years on, while also rich in detail and high in imagination. Carl Stalling's energetically high-voltage, luscious, rousing, dynamic and action-enhancing music score and inspired arrangements of pre-existing music shows off his compositional genius.

As often with Clampett, 'Wagon Heels' often veers between very funny to hilarious, only really mis-stepping with Sloppy Moe. The closing gag and anything with Injun Joe are particularly good. Porky is very likable and hardly bland while Injun Joe is funnier and more interesting, he is a stereotype sure but he is an entertaining one.

Mel Blanc does a superb job with the voices as always.

On the whole, very good cartoon apart from Sloppy Moe. 8/10 Bethany Cox
