The couple George and Junior will be used only four
times by Tex Avery, but those heroes are really famous. Two
characters as opposite as their outline: George is a little bear?
dog? very directing and having apparently some intellectual resources
; Junior is a large slow bear? dog?, extremely dumb, to whom Tex Avery lends his voice.
Our two heroes appear for the first time in the cartoon Henpecked Hoboes in 1946. Famished tramps, they try to catch a pretty hen after having gotten rid of the cock which takes care on the farmyard.
The cartoons with George and Junior are built on the same comic effect. The silly stupidity of Junior ruins all their attempts and obliges George, who never despairs to insert a little comprehension in the brain of the great dumb, to flank each time a masterly kick in the bottom of its companion.
On this very simple system, Tex Avery and his band have
finicked an incredible number of comic situations and gags
which make our two heroes (bear? dogs?) unforgettable.
Remember Junior, disguised in an enormous chick to cause the maternal love of the hen,
twisting the neck of George while howling "Don't touch
my mom" then accepting stoically its kick in the
buttocks!.. Or the George's dressings-up for attract the sexual favours
of its possible victims!
