Cartoon Production Information:


Yosemite Sam pounds on the door and says "Open that door! Open up that door!" and then turns to the audience and adds, "You notice I didn't say Richard." This is a period joke that references a popular 1947 song "Open the Door, Richard".

The Blue Ribbon release featured blue rings. This release also features the original title cards and includes credits.

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.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

Well-nigh Freleng's greatest Bugs cartoon, as well as the greatest Sam cartoon. Bugs has to do little or nothing to foil Sam once he's atop the high-dive...but watch this film on a big theatre screen sometime. The perspective shots, when Sam forces...  (read more)
