. . . posts a notice stating that "Hickory Holler" is not big enough for BOTH the predominantly Black Mathews Clan and the mostly White Bread Weaver Pack this is simply Warner Bros.' psychic Looney Tuners reminding Americans that U.S. President Abe Lincoln had vowed to Repatriate all of the Red Confederate State's Lazy Southerners' "Slaves" to the continent from which they'd been kidnapped, Africa (specifically, the country now known as Liberia). This means, of course, that IF the South's Poor Losers had not blown out Lincoln's brains, Oprah would be a LIBERIAN television star; Hattie, Sidney, Denzel, and Viola would be cleaning up on the LIBERIAN Oscar awards; Wilt, Kareem, Michael, and LeBron would be the Past and Present of the LBA (LIBERIAN Basketball Association); Jess, Rafer, Carl, and Edwin would be winning Olympic Gold Medals on the track for LIBERIA; Barack Hussein Obama would have to come out as a Muslim to earn any distinction as a LIBERIAN President, and so forth. Under Lincoln's plan, Liberia would be the center of world culture, with Rap, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Southern Cooking, Gangsta Fashion, etc. Let's see what happens IF Leader Trump runs across WHEN I YOO HOO on YouTube.

Freleng's early masterpieces

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

One of Friz Freleng's earliest masterpieces When I Yoo Hoo was released in 1936 and reissued on 2/24/45. It is the first reissue to have A WARNER BROS. CARTOON and WARNER BROS. PICTURES INC. thus scrapping out the closing title to hide mentions of Leon Schlesinger.

The cartoon opens with two families fighting but there is a rooster fighting contest in the center of town. The roosters fight themselves to death but when one falls the judge declares a winner which gets families mad. He then declares the other the winner making it the same as it was earlier. Little did he know, when he said it was a tie, both sides started attacking THE JUDGE, while the roosters watch in the audience.

feuds last forever

6/10

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.
