So, Buddy calls for Towser, and Towser arrives, Buddy talks "Now you keep an eye out on those chickens tonight," in which Towser replies with a bark as though he will do it. Towser runs out of the door in which Buddy closes it. He runs into his bouncy bed to turn off the light. I hope that Buddy isn't acting all boastful by being in his warm bed, so that Towser will have to sleep in the cold shack looking after Buddy's chickens. For some very strange reason, Buddy turns on a shower spout in which the candle goes out. Why would anyone ever use a spout to put out the --- oh never mind, so Buddy goes to sleep.
Another gag that is shown was a hen with her chicks, and one of the chicks then chirps to take her youngest child to the toilet. She wakes up one of the older chicks to take its sibling to use the toilet, but the black chick refuses. The impatient chick then takes him along, waits until about 3 seconds later - the chick has done a crap and that's that done. OH COME ON FRIZ, this is the type of crap gags that Hugh Harman or Rudolf Ising used, and yet you're using it for your Buddy cartoons?? My goodness, I've only started reviewing the 1934 cartoons and here I am grumbling about it!
Othr hens and chickens then start to throw their own eggs at the fox, and the fox runs off, but manages to avoid getting hit by a egg. The fox then locks himself outside. Hang on a minute, isn't Towser meant to be inside helping the chickens? Oh wait, Towser is in his kennel of course - DUH! But why can't he be inside the hut where the chickens therefore he could scare the fox out immediately.
Towser then squeals, until Buddy arrives at the scene and grabs out a penknife so that Towser is set free to catch the fox. As they have almost lost the culprit, Towser goes to an investigation by sniffing for the fox's tracks, Buddy's gun does the same. Towser thinks that he has found what he has sniffed, and then digs up a big pile of snow. What turned out to be in the "big pile of snow" was a grizzly bear, in which Buddy and Towser both run for their lives. Buddy turns to shoot the bear, but after the blast comes another bear. *Spitting out water from water* WHAT?!?!?! I repeat, WHAT?!?! You can't shoot a bear and then produce another multiple - how did you come to THAT conclusion. Of course, what you might be thinking is that Buddy shot the bear, and another multiple was made from his body so that the bear got slightly smaller. Nope, the bear is still the same size! My goodness, who created these gags - was Friz Freleng convinced to use Tom Palmer's gags and follow an encylopedia of them (all of whom are awful)?
The fox then hides under a tree hole, in which Towser barks as though he's found where he is. Buddy then places his gunt through the hole on the tree, in which the bullets goes through this weird looking branch that shoots out at Towser's behind, that causes him to yelp in pain. The fox is at the top of a half chopped tree, but blows a raspberry at Buddy. Towser then cools his behind in a lake, and furiously chases after the fox.
This cartoon was just awful to watch, pointless gags - plotless cartoon. Buddy is just as bland as ever, and I don't understand why that ther had to be another dog, unless Happy the dog was too ugly for us audiences. Towser is sort of a similar design to Bruno from the Bosko cartoons, except that Towser is much, much more blander while Bruno was much more cuter. I mean practially this cartoon lose it's synopsis - I mean, Buddy told his dog Towser to watch the chickens for the night, and we only see about three minutes of that happening in that short, while the rest of the film was just wasted of a chase sequence from Buddy and Towser in the woods chasing over a damn fox, man. Why not chase it out of a garden, and not go out there in the woods for the whole time - get a hobby.
