"I wonder where my darling little killer is."
Beaky Buzzard returns in this enjoyable short from Bob Clampett. Beaky had previously appeared in Clampett's classic Bugs Bunny Gets the Boid. Here, as in that short, Beaky and his brothers are sent out by their mother to capture food. The brothers do so easily but Beaky runs into some trouble. Fun stuff from Clampett but missing the something extra Bugs brought to the table in the previous short. Still there are funny gags and lines throughout, as well as references to Dumbo and The Great Gildersleeve. Beaky may be a minor character in the grand scheme of things but he's impossible to dislike. Good animation, music, and voice work. The last cartoon Kent Rogers did before his untimely death.
