Cartoon Production Information:


A reworking of 1944's Booby Hatched.

Songs include: "Where Can You Be, Brother Clem?", performed by Tom, Dick and Harry.

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.

This is one of my all time favorites. I actually came to this site for thesole purpose of finding out the name of this cartoon. A careless mother turtle allows one of her eggs to escape only partly hatched. While the poor baby turtle, named Clem, gets...  (read more)
