This special did get annoying at times like the depressed pumpkin but I think that they did that on purpose so that we would feel his pain. He is still unwanted on Halloween night and says "who wants a pumpkin after Halloween?" as he cries.
There are a lot of humorous scenes like when this cat gets ready to attack the mouse that left its hole because it was "Fed up" with the pumpkin's depression and is carried away by the pumpkin on an out of control skateboard.
Or when the police officer calls in three ghosts on wheels, a jogger going 50 MPH, and a cat on a pumpkin on a skateboard and the dispatcher flat out asks him if his family has any mental health issues.
Daws Butler has a lot of recognizable characters such as Spike the dog (Tom and Jerry). He was also the voice of many famous and not so famous Hanna Barbera chaarcters until his death on May 18. 1988. These included Loopy De Loop, Hokey Wolf, Auggie Doggie, Huckleberry Hound, Quickdraw Mcgraw, Baba Looey, Peter Potamus, Snagglepuss, Wally Gator, Yogi Bear, Mr. Cogswell, and the reason I was recognizing him in the first place. His Andy voice is identical to his Elroy Jetson voice.
The writer of this special is also familiar to me as it was Chuck Jones. You all know his work. He was the uncredited layout artist on Disney's classic Sleeping Beauty, Animation consultant on "Who Framed Roger Rabbit", director on "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" animated special, and worked on many Looney Tunes classics such as "Transylvania 6-5000" and "To Beep or Not To Beep". As well as many Tom and Jerry shorts. It is cool that they all have Tom and Jerry in common.
Oh and Chuck Jones also directed the very first short that one of my three favorite Looney Tunes characters (the other two are Lola Bunny and Road Runner) appeared in!
So that's a look at "The Pumpkin Who Wouldn't Smile." Even more reviews all weekend long!
