From Comics to Toons; Snuffy's Fair Lady (1963)

It's time to back to the woods with Snuffy Smith & Barney Google.

When a charm school opens, Louweeza decides to sign up in order to improve her appearance. Well, it's clear she's not an Eliza Doolittle type, and instead of a Henry Higgins for an instructor, the teacher (Paul Frees, who also voices Barney & Snuffy) is a ballet instructor. Didn't we see something like this with Popeye & Olive Oyl, too?

Here's "Snuffy's Fair Lady".

I'd think they'd have gone for the obvious and done the parody of the movie, just to see if they could poke fun at "My Fair Lady"....

Rating: B-.
