It's Not So Great to Be Crazy
11 February 2014 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Terrytoons tries out Dingbat, a yellow bird which indulges in random strange attacks like Screwy Squirrel or early Bugs Bunny in this cobbled together but amusing effort.

In this one the Fox is trying to capture a lamb by dressing in a sheepskin, but Dingbat pulls out the usual assortment of wacky defenses favored by cartoon nudniks. Of course, the question of why that's a fox in sheep's clothing distracted me for a bit, as did Dingbat's reasons, until I realized that this cartoon was written from bits and pieces and that motivation was deemed unimportant to the cartoon's audience. Unfortunately they were wrong, and after this was released under the occasional "Aesop's Fables" line, they didn't make another.
