Pretty Good Cartoon
28 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Farmer Al Falfa seems to have gone out of the farming business... or rather, he is running a health farm and is looking pretty spry in this pretty good Terrytoon.

Every other major cartoon producer was turning out color cartoons by this point, but Paul Terry was not spending the money for Technicolor. He does spend it nicely for this black and white cartoon, with more fully realized character drawings, ornate backgrounding and even smoother animation than before. I attribute a large part of this to co-director George Gordon, who would be the first talent picked up by Fred Quimby when he took over MGM's cartoon department a couple of years later. The gags are good, the plot is decent, even if the conclusion is telegraphed early on.
