early "Home Alone" (but far cooler)
An interesting example of the Termite Terrace crowd's early days is Tex Avery's "The Sneezing Weasel". The cartoon portrays a hick member of the genus Mustela* - voiced by Avery himself - who can't help but laugh at his own ridiculous comments after he catches sight of a chick. When the chick has to stay home sick, the big guy dresses up as a doctor and enters the house. But when his cover gets blown, the chicks all gang up on him in what looks like a precursor to "Home Alone" (only it's much cooler here).
This cartoon didn't have as many gags as most of Avery's cartoons did (the main one was the book), but as far as I'm concerned, any Tex Avery cartoon is a good one. You'll probably enjoy it.
*Mustela is the genus to which weasels belong. The family is Mustelidae.
