Storyline

A prisoner serving a 500 year stretch at Sing Song prison spends 20 years digging a tunnel under the wall. Escaping with his bag of disguises he intends to see the world but ends up instead inside the warden's television set. So, to keep from being caught, he has to use his disguises and act out programs such as a western, a boxing match and a ragtime band (but not the horse race) as the Warden keeps changing the channel.

An OK cartoon, for Tex Avery
26 December 2000 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

This cartoon is just average for Tex Avery, which means that it's still as good as the best work of some cartoon directors. Virtually all sight gags, many of the gags are familiar from other shorts and most often worked only moderately well here. Still worh watching (I've never seen a BAD Tex Avery) even if it's not one of his best.
