Roll Up the Door

Tex Avery’s impossible humour in “Lonesome Lenny” doesn’t wear itself out because it’s a lot of fun to see how Tex executes it.

Here’s a familiar looking gag, pulled off at the usual breakneck pace. Screwy Squirrel goes through a door. But he’s able to roll up the door so Lenny crashes into it.

The gag being finished, the door is back to normal. Lenny opens it and moves on to the next gag.

Heck Allen was Avery’s writer on this one. Ed Love, Preston Blair, Walt Clinton and Ray Abrams are the credited animators.
