While not nearly as weird and wacky as some of Avery's cartoons, this one is worth seeing.
I noticed one reviewer really hated this film and felt it wasn't funny. Well, to each his own. I liked it and think it's worth seeing...though it's certainly not among the weirder Tex Avery directed films.
George and Junior are idiot bears who want so eat a chicken. Considering they ARE bears, this shouldn't be difficult, but instead of just savaging the birds, George comes up with complicated plans and traps. Invariably, Junior ends up springing these devices on George and tormenting him...followed by George kicking Junior's behind.
There really isn't much more to the plot than this. In many ways, it's like a Roadrunner and Coyote film and it's worth your time. Not among Avery's better cartoons, granted, but still quite nice.
By the way, when I saw this one on TCM, one of the bits seems to have been cut. I think originally George's face blew up and they showed him looking much like a black person...an unfunny and politically incorrect joke to say the least.
