Gone With the Wand

Tex Avery and Heck Allen comment on their own gag in “Swing Shift Cinderella” (released 1945). The fairy godmother hears there’s an available wolf at Red Riding Hood’s. She whips out here wand, turns her barstool into a car and speeds off. That results in one of Tex’s famous sign gags.

A visual commentary on the sign follows.

The credited animators are Ray Abrams, Preston Blair and Ed Love.
