"To Itch His Own" is not like anything that I've ever seen. For the first few minutes, it's sort of unclear what's happening, as Angelo the world's strongest flea decides to take a vacation from the circus (I guess that he "fleas" the circus). But once he settles in on a certain dog and another dog invades the scene, it all takes off.

Was this cartoon a masterpiece? I wouldn't go so far as to say that. But pretty much anything that Chuck Jones created was quite fascinating. This cartoon contains no dialog, unless of course you count yelps of pain. Worth seeing, and a worthy final effort for composer Carl Stalling, who retired after this one.

I wonder why strongmen always have to have names ending in O.
