Synopsis: Buddy goes to work in a bookshop, falls into imagining himself in a book about the foreign legion, and some Amazons.

Comments: Those are some unusual biceps on Buddy. Sure, yo uhire a new kid, and put him in charge of the store in 30 seconds. Buddy may be the ugiest lead character of the year. The foreign legion paintings are the most WB-looking images to me in the cartoon. Reversed audio making the mummy come to life. The camel is Fleischery. Apparently the impression was local peoples were oppressing the French with sex... and it may be the subtext of Buddy working in the bookstore, with its strong female owner. Buddy is rightly fired. His catchphrase is Okey Dokey. Such a catchphrase! Based on content, I assume Clampett did the part with the feather duster and the naked woman and the pussy.
