Storyline

It's the Weavers vs. the Mathews in Hickory Holler. The Weavers are singing (the title song), the Mathews are sleeping. They wake up and start shooting, which ends the song. A Weaver coonskin cap is shot off, and proves not to be quite dead yet. The sheriff drives up in a very broken-down car and nails up a notice: The feud is to be settled by a rooster fight at Higgins' Barn. The fight is on: The roosters circle each other (getting their necks tangled). They proceed to mix it up, to the William Tell Overture (the storm). The Mathews rooster gets a shot of moonshine, and is soon bashing his opponent. They crash into each other and knock each other out; the sheriff tries declaring either a winner, or a draw, but that only gets the people more riled up; everyone piles into the ring as the roosters watch.

feuds last forever
15 October 2012 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Early on in "When I Yoo Hoo" I figured out that it had a plot similar to the later "A Feud There Was", which is best known for casting Egghead as a peacemaker named Elmer Fudd. Since it was the first time that the name appeared in a cartoon, the character didn't at all resemble the famed wabbit hunter. So, in this one, a pair of hillbilly families take potshots at each other - presumably a la the Hatfields and McCoys - until they get ordered to resolve the dispute with a cockfight...which of course turns out to be a pretty outlandish boxing match.

The title of course stems from a song sung by one of the characters. It was obviously a song in the Warner Bros. archives, since all their Merrie Melodies featured WB songs until the late '30s. As for the cartoon itself, the song is the best part - there are plenty of movies whose soundtracks are easily the best part - while the boxing match is a gag-filled riot. Worth seeing. Too bad that it lost the credits in the Blue Ribbon reissue.
