Trivia

The schoolteacher-wolf is depicted as a Confederate sympathizer; he encourages his students to paint a Confederate flag. However, his "theme song," which he whistles several times in the short, is Henry C. Work's "Kingdom Coming" (1862), an anti-Confederate song, celebrating the impending end of slavery in America. (This may be a deliberate joke by the filmmakers, because the dimwitted protagonist may not realize this.) See more »

Blackboard Jumble is a funny Droopy cartoon though the real star is a Daws Butler-voiced wolf
25 February 2014 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

After about 35 years of originally seeing this on an afternoon Tom and Jerry show, I watched this cartoon again as an extra on the Blackboard Jungle DVD. It has the voice of Daws Butler-employing the one he would eventually use for Huckleberry Hound-as a wolf who ends up taking a teaching job after the previous one runs out of the schoolhouse all crazy-like. This wolf finds three kids-all resembling Droopy (It seems Bill Thompson wasn't available as none of them talk here)-who cause all kinds of mischief. This wolf's reactions are quite funny especially when put in all kinds of situations. I suppose modern viewers may pause laughing when one scene involves a Confederate flag but since I found out the song he whistles was an anti-slavery song, that may even things out. Besides, I liked how those "stars" appeared on it! Anyway, that's a recommendation of Blackboard Jumble.
