“Which way did he go? Which way did he go?” A familiar line in a Tex Avery cartoon, isn’t it?
In Half-Pint Pygmy (1948), George says it, appropriately enough, at an information booth. The guy inside turns out to be a dopey octopus who weaves around before pointing in all directions.
George and Junior click their heels in the air and off they go after the title character.
Louie Schmitt and Bill Shull are still in the Tex Avery unit at this point, joined by Grant Simmons and Walt Clinton.
