Trivia

The legendary Chuck Jones left Warner Brothers for four months over the production of this cartoon, which he felt was unsatisfactory. He went to Disney for those months, and worked on Sleeping Beauty (1959), but eventually realized that, although he thought Walt Disney was an excellent producer, the company was not right for him. A famous meeting occurred when Disney told Jones "We can work out something for you" and Jones responded "Well, you have one job here that I want, and that's yours!" to which Disney said "I'm sorry, it's filled." It was the only time Jones left the company in a career that lasted over 25 years, until Jones was "let go" with the animation department in 1962. See more »

the cartoon is Jones, but the 3d effects are friz
17 September 2006 | by iamscottevilSee all my reviews

The 3d effects are an afterthought in this cartoon, and so I think it's harsh to judge it based on that. The studio had shut down and everyone but friz had left, including Jones. This cartoon was left to be released, but as the 3d craze started, they had friz rework it in the format, so none of the effects were planned to be made thus suffering a lack of flexibility for creative use.

My favorite effects are the dog showing up on the horizon being a much more pronounced effect how large the dog is in 3d. Seeing bugs behind the dog's eyes in 3d space is another good use of the technique.

I can't fault them for the lack of profound effects, but having a closed studio it's amazing that such a gem of a bygone era on the big screen is so much more captivating than in the flat of television. These cartoons are for a theater audience and nothing shows that better than a whole room full of cartoon fans with their dorky 3d glasses on laughing as the moose comes to meet the call and a 50' dog, then turning tail and running.

If you ever get the chance to see this is the stereo projection it was designed for, don't miss!
