From all your pals in Lattaland (and Frank Zappa too) Have a happy Valentine’s Day…Or not. I guess it’s really up to you. What,do you want today to be boring like all the rest? Jeez, cut loose a little. Broken hearts are for assholes.
“Ah, my little darling, it is love at first sight, is it not, no?”
Hello, gorgeous readers, and hello to the ugly ones too! Have I got a cartoon for you little melon baby collies. This short doesn’t get much play these days, but then again, what Looney Tunes cartoon does? I hate this modern world. At any rate, this short is worth mentioning for shaking up the skunk chasing the cat dynamic by having the object of desire in the form of a jungle cat. It also seems to be that our hero, Pepé actually LIKES to get beat up. You and me both, Pepé. You and me both.
If I said it once, then I said it, well, once. Disney cartoons aren’t funny. 1954’s Donald’s Diary comes pretty darn close, though.
This short displays more cynicism than anything else to ever come out of The Magic Kingdom® before or since. I think another reason this cartoon totally excels, I mean, besides the handsome backgrounds and animation, is that it circumvents the obstacle of Donald’s voice.
Also of note, Daisy Duck has never looked sexier. Qu-Quack! I wouldn’t mind throwin’ crumbs in that pond.
