Tex and the Wolves
28 December 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is a sort of city mouse/country mouse kind of thing. The country wolf is under the spell of a buck toothed female (of course, country people have bad teeth). He actually pursues her and she him and the results are unsatisfactory. As he practically gets himself killed, a note comes from the city wolf. Attached is a picture of Red Riding Hood, a lounge singer. She is shapely and desirable. The country wolf takes off for the city. Once there, he becomes a sex maniac. The city wolf can barely control him. Every Tex Avery wolf, eye popping routine is used. Slobbering, thumping, howling, on and on. He becomes an utter embarrassment to his city counterpart. Every method that is possible is used to restrain the lupine hick. It's pretty funny with a nice little conclusion.
