Synopsis: Termite calls out the exterminator.

Comments: Opening sign pan. Bulbous man. Timing too quick. Strangely computer looking thing with wires coming out. Many odd angles. Feels kinda like a bad Porky Pig cartoon (from '39). Addams family looking house. The termite is a douchebag. Many odd angles (that the backgrounds are presented at). More signs that What's Buzzin' Buzzard?, which is saying something. I didn't like them especially there, and I like them even less here. Why would a termite looking for a fight dress in old fashioned high society clothing? The cartoon gives the feeling of not havig really been thought about when made. It just got made.

Volus Jones is quite a name.
