Jerky Turkey Reviews:

This short is wonderful! Take a pilgrim that sounds a lot like Droopy, add a turkey who sounds like Jimmy Durante, add a bear wearing a sandwich sign, allow Tex Avery stir it all together and you have a nice cartoon. Sight gags everywhere, especially the bear (typical Avery running gag) but beware ye old edited print off ye Cartoon Network-this is a classic. Most definitely worth looking for. Most recommended.


Earlier in his career, Tex Avery worked for Warner Brothers at their Looney Tunes unit. However, his movies from this period are only okay--mostly because the studio never allow him go wild. When he left and went to MGM, he went on to create some of the craziest and funniest cartoons ever. So, even if it's an average cartoon from him during this amazingly constructive period, it's still well worth your time--and that's how I would describe "Jerky Turkey".The movie is set during the Pilgrim period in Fresh England. They plan on a celebration and a big-nosed Pilgrim boy goes hunting for a turkey. The Pilgrim's voice is done by the same guy who soon voiced Droopy (Bill Thompson) and the odd voice of the turkey (which sounded like Jimmy Durante) was provided by Daws Butler. The movie consists of the usual hijinx--as well as a VERY strange bear wearing an Eat At Joe's sandwich-board sign. Weird and fun--and well worth your time.By the way, in the movie you hear the expression 'was this trip really necessary'. That's because it was made during WWII and this phrase was coined to discourage folks from frivolous travel since most of the gas was required for the fight effort. Here, it takes on a entire fresh meaning! Also, the reason the city crier is crying is because he's been declared 1-A--meaning he's been ruled fit and ready for the draft (and 4-F is the opposite--unfit for the draft).


"Jerky Turkey" is an American Tex Avery cartoon from 1945. This one runs for 7 minute like they usually did over 70 years ago. Avery is the director here and part of the voice acting cast, but not a writer this time. The game already gives away that a turkey is involved in here in one of the key roles. Not the country obviously, but the animal. He goes up vs a hungry pilgrim and while there are parallels between Bugs versus Elmer for example, the turkey is not invinciblae seemingly which is shown to us when the fox chases him away or at the ending of course. He is just superior to the pilgrim you should say. There is one very brief gobbles mention and I wonder if it still has to do with the German high-profile politician back then. I doubt it though because this was 1945 already. In any situation this cartoon was banned. Okay, I think it started fairly weak, the fox joke, the tooth joke and early on the running gag "Eat at Joe's" did not feel too funny. But it gets better. The painted landscape is when the movie peaks (together with the end). And the falling tree moment is nice as well. And yeah, then the ending which was perhaps the highlight of the whole thing and makes up for many mediocrities before that. This does not contain the visual side obviously because this is from the Golden Age of Animation. I am not too large on many another Tex Avery works, but this one here I liked, especially in the second half. And there's no denying that when Avery is at his greatest his jokes are like quick punches that even Disney and Warner Bros will have a difficult time closing the gap to. Not a must-see, but worth checking out. See it of you like old animation.
