This is the only cartoon in which Egghead is not depicted as his traditional self, in a green suit and derby. In this film, he wears a brown hunting suit and cap, has dark hair, and carries a Savage .99 rifle. See more »
A Merrie Melodies cartoon with the Loony Tunes anthem
Isn't "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down" the theme song to the Loony Tunes? Tex Avery was probably aware of this, which would make it an inside joke, adding to the countless gags which the gang at Termite Terrace used, to make each other laugh. I was watching this cartoon recently from their Golden Collection Vol. 3. This one didn't have a commentary, so I thought I'd put that out there, but I suppose most die-hard fans noticed it right away. (I wish there were commentaries for all of them.)
Also, Mel Blanc voiced the turtle referee, and he did a brilliant impersonation of Chico Marx.
While this cartoon is very good for its time (with Tex Avery to boot), I vastly prefer the 40's and 50's versions, which is why I only gave it a 7. Personal preference.
