Cartoon Production Information:

Early version of 1938's "A Star Is Hatched."

Bing Crosby tried to stop distribution of this cartoon (and "Bingo Crosbyana") because he was depicted as a "vainglorious coward."

In September of 1943, beginning with A Feud There Was, Warner Bros. began re-releasing select color cartoons in their Blue Ribbon program. Typically the Blue Ribbon reissues received new opening sequences with Blue Ribbon title cards and standardized music. Cartoon production credits were also removed. Between ten and fifteen cartoons were released in any given year, with cartoons coming from as far back as 1935. The reissues continued until the close of the studio in the 1960's.

All Blue Ribbon cartoons were released as "Merrie Melodie" cartoons regardless of the original series. The first "Looney Tunes" short to be included in the Blue Ribbon series was The Hep Cat, which was added in 1949. The only current prints of many of these cartoons are the Blue Ribbon releases, although restoration of these cartoons with original elements and titles is always ongoing.

Soundtrack: "I've Got My Eye on You," Music by Sam H. Stept, Lyrics by Bud Green, Sung by French Singer in Nightclub; "I Wanna Woo," Music by Mabel Wayne; "Let It Be Me," Music by Allie Wrubel, Lyrics by Mort Dixon, Sung by Mr. Bingo; "Home Sweet Home," Music by H.R. Bishop.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
