Cartoon Production Information:


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.

Songs include: "If I Could Be With You (One Hour Tonight)" (Jimmy Johnson-Henry Creamer), Performed by Bugs Bunny; "Suitors" (Carl Stalling); "If I Could Be With You (One Hour Tonight)" (Jimmy Johnson-Henry Creamer), Performed by Casbah.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

Comments By:
Most of the Freleng-Pierce efforts of the late 40s are classics, but this one's easily a weaker one. The trouble is Bugs dueling it out with the big, dumb Casbah--much to likable to be a real villain. Seeing Bugs pound the hell out of him becomes...  (read more)
