Did You Know?

Trivia:
In the scene where Foxy was trying to push a hippo into the streetcar, which is clearly too small for her, she starts mumbling in gibberish. It's actually a backwards track and when played in reverse, she's clearly saying "Susie heard one of those Atlantic bells! Whataya think?"See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: The girl-fox on the streetcar sits down, but the animators forgot to draw the bench. (In the next shot, she sits down again, but this time the bench is there.)See more »

Foxy's swan song, memorable mainly for the title song and little else, 8 May 2002

This is the third of the three Foxy cartoons, an obnoxiously, relentlessly cheerful short that probably hastened the retirement of the lead character. Notable for the title tune and for Friz Freleng serving as an animator, this is a curio more than anything else. A few cute bits, but not terribly special or memorable in and of itself. Worth watching and recommended if you really like old black and white animation.
