| One of Art Davis' very finest
Of all the Warner cartoons, this is the one that reminds me most of a Jay Ward TV cartoon—no real mystery, as Bill Scott wrote the script.

Of all the Davis cartoons (and he directed many fine ones in the three years he was director), this one and "Riff Raffy Daffy" are probably the cream of the crop. The interaction of the three characters is simply hysterical, particularly when the hero Elmo searches drunkenly for a coat made of ermine; he then sees a cat's food dish with the name Herman, and he vanquishes the cat through sheer stupidity. I can just picture George Of The Jungle or Bullwinkle speaking this dialogue.

All three voice artists shine here, but I award special kudos to Stan Freberg in the Elmo role. Unlike Mel Blanc, all of whose voices I can link to the same voice timbre, there's no common thread uniting all of Freberg's voices…..a dumb character, a clever rodent, or a feminine voice. I can't trace any of them to the same guy.

No real matter. Director Art Davis reportedly called this his own favorite among all the cartoons he directed.
