Tijuana Toads (DVD)
Like an amphibian Laurel & Hardy, TIJUANA TOADS revives the thin guy/fat guy formula for comedy, and endows it with a distinctive south-of-the-border flavor. Toads “Pancho” and “El Toro” engage in madcap mischief (and even a bit of romance) while seeking to advance themselves within the biological food chain: giving chase to grasshoppers, Japanese beetles, and flies, while evading comic predators like snakes, cats, dogs, and a particularly dopey crane. This edition includes all seventeen laugh-filled episodes, rendered in the distinctive DePatie-Freleng style of the late ’60s/early ’70s, newly remastered in high definition.
