One of my most favorite Egghead cartoons and WB shorts involving American Indian characters. I think it's one of the funniest too. I like how this based on John Smith and Pocahontas is distorted from what really happened and not quite accurate. Despite the somewhat racial (or racist) overtones, it's still a grand, amusing short, to me it's one of the best and shouldn't be taken too seriously as such, because much of the racial group who are depicted as the bad guys in this could've been anybody else also and exactly the same. My favorite parts are the scenes with the Native American neighborhood, Poker-Huntas coming to Johnny/Egghead's aid, the chase and every time Johnny/Egghead mentions that he sailed to America on the Mayflower. I wish this made its way to DVD release already and can't wait till it finally does make it's way onto that format. I love Poker-Huntas, she's delightful. This is great, especially for those who are into history and notwithstanding the spin on the true story, it would be perfect to use and show in history class. I recommend this for that one good reason.
