Cartoon Production Information:


The last Dinky Duck cartoon, and the only one in CinemaScope.

Also, the only Dinky Duck cartoon to be made in modern stylized form during the brief time that Gene Deitch was at TerryToons.

In the opening, Dinky stomps off the (standard proportion) screen of the Loxy Theater as the scene widens to reveal its true Cinemascope proportions!

One of the most satiric of the Deitch-era theatrical TerryToons, this cartoon features pointed spoofs of contemporary 1950s TV commercials (Deitch himself came to TerryToons from the world of animated TV commercials).

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
