| victory through Airedale power
Two years before he debuted Charlie Dog (the mutt who always invades Porky Pig's life) in "Little Orphan Airedale", Chuck Jones cast a different hound in "Fresh Airedale". Canine protagonist Shep accepts a bone to allow a burglar into the house, but when the cat stops the crook, Shep takes credit. His anger surges when he learns that another dog somewhere else is considered the Number 1 Dog.

I see that some of the scenes came from a never completed cartoon featuring Franklin Roosevelt, that they canceled following FDR's death. While I understand that people may have not been able to handle a cartoon depicting the 32nd president - or at least his dog Fala - after he died, I still think that it would be interesting to see what remains of that cartoon. As an insight into the population's understanding of the president, that is.

Otherwise, I didn't detect anything really unique about this cartoon. Worth seeing, if only once.
