"The Car of Tomorrow" (1951) / "Mouse In the House" (1947)

This is an old MGM cartoon directed by Tex Avery. Apparently there is another version of this floating around which was shortened slightly in order to be more politically correct. This is the original, which still has the Chinese and Indian cars which were removed. Since I just had an accident, which totaled my car, I'm looking for a good used one. Rather than start with Craig's list, I figured that looking on You Tube might prove to be interesting.

And right below is a very good "Tom and Jerry" cartoon from 1947, titled "A Mouse in the House." It's the same old story you read about in the news all the time - too many people and not enough jobs. This one is directed by the legendary team of William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, who would later bring you Fred and Wilma Flintstone, as well as the town of Bedrock.
