Trivia

This cartoon debuted the 1945 shortened version of the Merrie Melodies theme, used until Hare Brush (1955), and then only in the opening. The closing continued to use the 1941 theme, also until "Hare Brush", while Blue Ribbon reissues continued to use the 1941 theme until 1956, when Blue Ribbons began retaining their original title cards.

LOL hilarious!
24 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

"Why, ev'rybody knows ME! I'm Yosemite Sam: the meanest, toughest, rip-rawlin'est, Edward Everett Horton-est hombre what ever packed a six-shoota!"

That's one of my most favorite quotes. Another one is where Sam says really calmly...

"Why did you pour ink on my head?"

This legendary cartoon series had some damn good writers, something that tons of toons these days miss terribly. Hopefully, these kind of cartoons will be revived soon 'cause they was some kinda magic. Michael Maltese was probably my favorite Warner Bros. cartoon writer. His stuff was just so funny it'd make a guy cry! Mel Blanc is hilarious; he can do hundreds and thousands of voices and still remember his real one!
