The Car (End) of Tomorrow

In 1947, Studebaker came out with a car with a back end that looked like a front end.

Tex Avery and writers Rich Hogan and Roy Williams parodied it in Car of Tomorrow. Narrator Gil Warren points out it’s difficult to tell if some new models are coming or going. Even arrows aren’t very helpful in determining the front end and the back end.

Then the wheels turn. We now learn which is the front end.

The “step down” Hudson gets parodied later in the cartoon.

Mike Lah, Walt Clinton and Grant Simmons are the animators.
