Cartoon Production Information:

The first of Warner Bros. "Blue Ribbon" reissue cartoons. 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.

Egghead is identified as Elmer Fudd on his motorcycle.

This is the first use of the name "Elmer Fudd" in Warner Bros. cartoons. The name would become attached to the familiar Elmer Fudd character in "Elmer's Candid Camera" (1940). Elmer Fudd is named after Elmer Wait, the Warner Brothers animator who passed away one year before this cartoon is released.

According to the Southern Mountaineers Filmography of Appalachian State University Libraries, the Sons of the Pioneers- featuring Bob Nolan and Roy Rogers- apparently provided the country singing.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

One of the best of Tex's WB toons. He should have remade this one at MGM or Lantz even.
