Title: No Mutton Fer Nuttin'
Dave Tendlar John Walworth
Series: Noveltoons (the first one). Blackie the Lamb (likewise, I think)
Running time (of viewed version): 7:38
Commercial DVD Availability: - (600 Cartoon Disc 7)
Synopsis: Black sheep is strong against wolf, white sheep not so much.
Comments: Same release date as Her Honor the Mare, the first release day after a long break related to the move from Florida back to NY. Open on a sign. The prices on meat were, I suppose high; $1 per pound for chicken, $2/lb for beef, lamb chops $10/lb. The price on lamb is slightly more than current actual prices for regular chops, but the other prices are less than actual current prices (barring a sale). Why do wolves always have to have the same outfit? Struggling for weapons. Black sheep with dice. Wolf word shows up. Wolf twisting around the tree looks interesting enough. Underwater hot foot. Water skin. Blackie's dice cheat. Last wish is to smoke. This would not be allowed now of course. Extended shot of a house burning down. Avery esque extension beyond the closing iris. And a war reference for scrap metal. I don't know why the wolf isn't ecstatic for a tire in a sack; I'd think he could trade it for mucho meat.
Thunderbean animation is about to, or already has, depending on when you read this, release(d) a Noveltoons disc. Not with this cartoon tho.
