| Decent but it lacks the usual Tex Avery wackiness.
"Flea Circus" is a decent little cartoon from MGM. However, you'd probably not suspect it was directed by Tex Avery because the short is awfully conventional and lacks the usual Avery weirdness.

The episode begins at a flea circus. The show is very successful and the fleas are very anthropomorphic. One of these is the diva of the show and another flea who is a clown is in love with her. However, given her status as the show's star, he doesn't appear to have a prayer. But, when an errant dog passes by and takes most of the fleas with him, our little clown hero is going to the rescue.

There are a few laughs here and there but mostly the biggest laughs are hearing the fleas speak with French accents--which isn't funny at all. Still, it's harmless fun.
