A Day At The Zoo
Today’s classic cartoon is another Warner Brothers’ Merrie Melodies, directed by Tex Avery, and featuring Egghead, the forerunner to Elmer Fudd. Made in 1939, A Day At the Zoo is chalkful of corny puns and homespun humor that still works because it’s fast-paced and fairly breezy. Here, we’re entertained by two bucks (deer) and five scents (skunks)! The pack of camels are smoking, of course. Egghead tests his luck with a lion. More from the OldHorseman.
