This is one of the most ridiculously awful theatrical cartoons Iíve ever seen from Warner Bros., or rather from Depatie-Freleng Enterprises as the original Termite Terrace studio had already been closed down. In the mid 60s Warners decided to start some new cartoons for theatrical release, only problem is that the talent had been fired or had otherwise left the studio. So the studio hired Depatie-Freleng Enterprises to create a series of shorts for them, with an extremely limited budget. While some of these cartoons are at least watchable, most were marred by terrible - by Warnerís previous theatrical standards - animation, and a number of them ended starring the worst pair-up in the history of animation: Daffy Duck vs. Speedy Gonzales.
This short is a piece of garbage, the art is blatantly copied from Broomstick Bunny and Duck Amuck, and in some cases even the dialogue is copied as well word-for-word; itís ridiculous and will probably make you wonder why you arenít watching those two shorts instead. Infuriating while this may be, it also marks the best animation in the short, as everything else that is not copied is 1960ís TV quality, in that it has no place being on a cartoon under the Warner Bros. shield.
However the worst part of this short is the writing and pacing of the short. The setup of the plot takes up far too long and is so convoluted that it is pointless, the synopsis I wrote is the most coherent I could make this mess. And while it has no redeeming qualities as a story it neither does it have any redeeming features as entertainment, it plods along so slowly and is so ineptly written that there isnít a funny line in any shape or form throughout the whole film.
I expect better from both companies, but this is lazy crud beyond belief, itís a boring, badly made, incompetently put together short made for fiscal reasons rather than entertainment ones. In the end itís a worthless piece of celluloid that doesnít deserve to exist, let alone be put on one of the Golden Collections.
