I Saw the Light ... and Swallowed It

A lightbulb gives a cute little Disney-esque rabbit an idea in Doggone Tired (1949).

The rabbit is doing all he can to keep a dog awake so the dog will be too tired to hunt him in the morning. The rabbit connects the light switch to a clock so the light keeps turning on and off.

The dog unscrews the light bulb.

That doesn’t solve the problem.

Neither does eating the bulb. We get some body-orafice jokes before the dog looks at the camera in disgust and the scene ends (there’s a pretty quick to the next scene; I wonder if the start of it was edited).

Bobe Cannon, Mike Lah, Grant Simmons and Walt Clinton are the animators for Tex Avery in this short. Character designs are by ex-Disneyite Louis Schmitt.
