Cartoon Production Information:

Also titled "The Man Hunt."

Director Tex Avery parodies the processes of cartooning and cinema: in one sequence, the fleeing wolf runs so fast that he has to hold onto the sprocket holes of the film frame just to keep himself in the picture.the short also recycles the scene from "Dumb-Hounded" where the fleeing wolf runs in the city and nearly runs out the film frame.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
