Storyline

Two polite twin gophers find that their home, a tree, has been cut down and taken away. They find it in a log pile about to be taken inside a processing factory. When they follow it into the factory, they become caught in the bizarre human machinery whose purpose, among other things, is to grind whole trees down to make toothpicks.

Cute? Yeah; Funny? No!
7 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

This features "Goofy Gophers," and I can see why this pair of characters never made it big in the Warner Brothers company of animated characters: they simply weren't funny. Cute? Yes? Funny? No. There wasn't anything to laugh about it this story of two gophers who have the top of their tree (where they store nuts) chopped off by lumberjacks.

They go searching for the half-tree, find it at the bottom of a river with others, and try to bring it home, first paddling down the river with it, then back at the mill battling a buzz-saw, and then following it as it became furniture.

All the while, they keep their cool and use a decent vocabulary, trying to sound British. They also get a plug in that will please all the "tree-huggers" out there.

Charming in spots, but where's the humor? Not in this cartoon, that's for sure.
