The Stuff Nightmares Are Made Of
This cartoon comedy, about a pint-sized cannibal capable of consuming people with one huge snap of his mighty jaws, is the stuff childhood nightmares are made of. I saw it on TV as a child back in the 1960s, and never forgot it - I seriously doubt they'd show it today. (When I saw it again for the first time in something like 35 years, I felt a chill creeping up my spine - I don't know whether it was because the cartoon was affecting me in the present, or if I was unearthing some repressed memories.) Some may argue the finale steals from Tex Avery's "Crazy Mixed Up Pup," but it does provide something resembling justice - as well as a jaw-dropper of an ending. Once you see "Chew Chew Baby," you're not likely to forget it - no matter how hard you try.
