We continue the saga of Walter Lantz to focus on the cartoons Dick Lundy directed in the late '40s. An O.G. Disney alumnus, Lundy brought a spit and polish to the Lantz product and made the studio's most lavish pictures—much to Walter's wallet's chagrin. Highlights: Freddie Moore at Lantz! The scumbaggery of Buzz Buzzard! The Woody Woodpecker Song's controversy! And just in time for Father's Day, we discuss Lundy's Wacky-Bye Baby, with doting papa Wally Walrus trying to kill his newly adopted son Woody.

Cartoons discussed: The Beach Nut, Ski for Two, Crow Crazy, Bathing Buddies, Smoked Hams, The Flying Jalopy, Wet Blanket Policy, Dog Tax Dodgers, and Wacky-Bye Baby.
