Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: This here sure is Dallas, Texas, the way it stands today. But hidden amid the modern buildings there still stands today a small reminder of the way it used to be, the very first jail house. It was built to house the very first bad man in the history of Texas. Now remember this was a long time ago, back when Texas was young, mighty young.

I LOVE this "history" of Dallas...
19 March 2003 | by kellyjkitSee all my reviews

...told as only Tex Avery could! One funny thing is that if you would have seen this in 1955, you would have assumed that Dallas had a subway system. Well, we finally got one (actually a light-rail system) in the 1990s. (Dallas did have a trolley system back then that has fortunately been revived recently!) Whether you are a Texan or not (but ESPECIALLY if you are!), search this cartoon out. You will be a big kick out of it! Just don't come to Dallas searching for those huge cliffs, desert landscapes, or that jail -- but luckily, Dallas has learned to take itself a little less seriously in the past couple of decades, and you will see other fun things!
