A Shorts Story: Each Dawn I Crow


Each Dawn I Crow is a 1949 cartoon from Warner Brothers. It features an hysterical John Rooster trying to avoid being Sunday supper for the dim-witted, but determined. Elmer Fudd. The title was taken from James Cagney-George Raft prison drama Each Dawn I Die. The sarcastic voice over was a take-off on the popular radio drama The Whistler, which featured an all-knowing, all-seeing narrator who frequently taunted the hapless characters featured on the series (clip below).
