He’s hyper. He’s paranoid. He has bent wrists. He slurps all the time. He’s a weasel. And he gets a good slapping from the barnyard dog in “Weasel While You Work,” a 1958 Bob McKimson effort.
McKimson seems to have loved the weasel character, as he used versions of him in “Plop Goes the Weasel” (1953) and “Weasel Stop” (1956).
This cartoon is one of the Seely Six, where the music was supplied by John Seely at Capitol Records from the company’s Hi-Q production library. The opening theme is “Popcorn” by Phil Green, which was more commonly heard on Snooper and Blabber cartoons.
Warren Batchelder, Tom Ray, George Grandpré and Ted Bonnicksen get the animation credits.
