Buck Egghead Rides Again!
16 January 2018 | by nodogthebestSee all my reviews

Egghead Rides Again is the first cartoon to feature Egghead, a character that supposedly evolved into Elmer Fudd. This cartoon was directed by Tex Avery.

Egghead is whooping around his hotel room, imitating a cowboy, but the anything-but-lax hotel manager throws him out because he is too distracting. Thus, Egghead seeks for a job. He finds a job listing in the newspaper at the "Bar None Ranch". Perfect!

Egghead arrives there in a...rather unusual way. The other cowboys don't show any remorse. They then give him tests. After the initial tests have disastrous results, they assign him to the task of branding a calf.

The animation was great, and generally bursting at the seams with expression. The music was also good, with nice usage of then-current music. The jokes were very funny! With Tex Avery around, this cartoon is a big hit! Would recommend, although Egghead might be annoying to some.
