Andy Panda - "Meatless Tuesday"


Now that everyone's gone out and picked up the new Woody set I wanted to share one of my favorite Andy Panda shorts. I was dissappointed to see that "Meatless Tuesday" wasn't included on the set. But since "Playful Pelican" is on part of that "Spook-A-Nanny" bonus I got over it. Besides I've still got my VHS copy of it. Shamus Culhane directed this short, he had no real interest in Andy Panda as a character but I think the few he did were great. While this short is as great as "Fish Fry" it's definitely better than the Andy Panda shorts that were being made before his arrival at Lantz. This is also Pat Matthews first screen credit at Lantz. Thank god for that Woody set, I spent the other night freeze framing his animation. He is brilliant.

You can really see Shamus fine-tuning the story structures at Lantz with this film. The scene with Andy struggling to bump off the rooster is brilliant!

What scenes did Matthews and Smith animate?

I got a copy of this cartoon and i think it's one of my favourite Andy cartoons. The animations is amazing and the storyline is incredible. And more, no voices in this cartoon about the cock-a-doodle sound. The ending is just very tough. :)

Have you seen Poet & Peasant by any chance? Is it any good?
