An arctic saloon. The tiny dog, Dan McFoo, is playing a pinball-like marble game in the back. His girlfriend, Sue, sounding like Katharine Hepburn, stands by. A stranger comes in with eyes for Sue; he begins a boxing match with Dan. After Dan gets knocked down, he accuses the stranger of having something in the glove; the ref finds four horseshoes and a horse. After the fight goes on a while with no conclusion, the narrator tosses a couple of guns, the lights go out, and Dan is shot or is he? Written by

Arthur Q. Bryan voiced the character of Dan McFoo, using the same voice he later used for Elmer Fudd. This has led many to misidentify this cartoon as the first appearance of Elmer, when it is actually a completely different character. See more »
Katharine Hepburn's voice comes out of a Bette Davis lookalike depicted as a gun moll in a western saloon, and Elmer Fudd's voice comes out of DANGEROUS DAN McFOO. Other than that, this is a typical slugfest as performed in most wild west westerns (like DODGE CITY, where this is the featured cartoon on the Warner DVD). The brawl in DODGE CITY is child's play compared to the brawl here, thanks to over-the-top imagination of the cartoonists.
A few funny sight gags are interspersed with the western antics of two gunfighters, one obviously more dangerous than the other, but he ain't "dangerous" Dan.
Amusing, if corny, and filled with all the standard clichés of the western features that would soon dominate the '40s.
