Storyline

Foxy is a policeman on the beat. He has no trouble with a single criminal who pops out of a trashcan and sprays bullets at him with a machine gun. Foxy has his own gun. It shoots out an expandable arm with a platform on the end. A mouse with a mallet stands on the platform and knocks the criminal unconscious. Foxy has a bit more trouble with a hippo who runs him over. She begs him not to fine her. He gives in, but throws a trashcan over her head to show his contempt. Foxy's real trouble begins with a gang of criminals armed with a grenade, a machine gun and mouthfuls of tobacco juice. They kidnap Foxy's girlfriend. The bushy-tailed cop hops on a wooden horse, and the chase is on. Written by J. Spurlin

Hiding a gun in his pants? Doesn't he worry about losing his manhood?
14 November 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

One of the few cartoons starring Foxy - Warner Bros. soon decided that Merrie Melodies wouldn't feature any of the stars* - casts the vulpine character as a cop. But I ask you: what cop in his right mind sticks his pistol in the front of his pants?! There are plenty of things that a guy can stick in that area, but a gun could easily deprive him of his manhood.

So, this is an OK cartoon, despite the limited plot. In case you're wondering what's up with the song, for about the first six or seven years, Merrie Melodies cartoons would always take the name of a song and have the characters sing the song in one scene (hence titles like "One More Time" and "I Haven't Got a Hat"). WB ended this by the end of the '30s.

*In the late '30s Elmer Fudd's prototype Egghead began appearing regularly in Merrie Melodies, followed by Sniffles, Inki, and finally Bugs Bunny.
