Comments

From Jerry Edwards : A "typically British" fox hunt is shown but with several gags added. One hunter has misadventures riding a pig and a porcupine. One hunter catches the fox by the tail as it runs into a log. As the other hunters gather around the log, the hunter pulls out ... a skunk. The hunters quickly pull a disappearing act as the skunk and fox shake hands. One drawback to the short for me is that, most of the time, the hunters are shown as identical, as are their horses. I realize this made it easier and cheaper to animated, but it does detract from the cartoon for me.
