Talk about self-fulfilling prophecies!

This cartoon (the title is a play on the film title "Each Dawn I Die") is one of the better Elmer Fudd solos the did. It concerns a rather foolish rooster, the hazards of jumping to conclusions and the danger of inattention. The narration is excellent, visual gags are here in abundance and the payoff is a scream for everyone but John Rooster. It's usually a good idea to be aware of your surroundings. A delightful little short. Well worth looking for. Recommended.
