One of the most atypical "buddy films" you'll ever see!
24 February 2002 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

This short is a "buddy movie", but these are not your standard buddies. Then again, it's a Tex Avery cartoon, so atypical is probably the norm here anyway. Sight gags all over the place and, as with any Avery, things move quickly. Beware of the edited print shown on Cartoon Network. Fortunately, this is in print. Well worth watching. Recommended.
