Trivia

Red Hot Ryder is a mix of Red Skelton's radio characters 'Sheriff Deadeye' and 'Clem Kiddlehopper' with catchphrases "Whoa horse! Come on horse whoa!" and "Here I am". See more »

Goofs

The entire cartoon, which is set in the Old West, is predicated on the Masked Marauder stealing carrots from a victory garden. Victory over what? The victory garden is a reference to World War II (which was going on during this cartoon's production), but the cartoon's setting is well before that.

Plus, the desert environment wouldn't support victory gardens. See more »

Quotes

Bugs Bunny: Check out the fugitive from the funny papers.
[laughs]
Red Hot Ryder: Let me at that Masked Marauder. I'm a gonna murder him. I'm a gonna *murder* him!
Bugs Bunny: Murder, he says. So he wants to play cops and robbers, eh? All right, he'll be the cop, and I'll be the bad widdle wobber.

Another racy Clampett cartoonie!!!
8 September 2003 | by (Morro Bay, Hammett Valley, Twin Rocks) – See all my reviews

In this one, "The Masked Marauder" (Bugs Bunny) robs the "hero" Red Hot Ryder with a big magnet, taking his money, his bullets, and even the fillings in his teeth!!! He also takes his belt buckle and Red Hot is left standing there naked with but a leaf to cover his...ahem!!!

Clampett is one for pushing the envelope, but man, it's funny!!! If you need a great belly laugh, look to Clampett and Avery!!!
