What it is: Farmer Al Falfa cartoon

Farmer Al Falfa goes to the dentist.

For a Terrytoons cartoon, this one is not too bad, partially because it taps in to the fear we have of going to the dentist and because it’s a little more creative in the dream sequence after the patient has been dosed with the gas. It’s the latter section that has the fantastic content, as the patient drifts up into outer space and has a close encounter with the man in the moon; in fact, he meets a whole gaggle of moons. There are no big laughs here, but it is consistently amusing. This is one of the studio’s more consistent offerings.
