A Day at the Zoo

A Day at the Zoo is a 1939 Warner Bros. Merrie Melodies cartoon supervised by Tex Avery. The short was released on March 11, 1939 and features Egghead, an early version of Elmer Fudd.


This is one of the cartoons that Warner Bros. would occasionally produce in the late 1930s and early 1940s that was centered around a series of gags, usually based on outrageous stereotypes and plays on words, and topical references, as a narrator (Gil Warren) describes the action in a rapid-fire succession of anthropomorphic behavior, pun gags, or any combination thereof.
