More Info., 14 September 2008
Author: erslade1 from United States

I did see this as a child on TV in the early 1970s it was probably on a local station before the PC police got started censoring everything good. It is available on a laser disc called "Looney Tunes Curtain Calls" yes it is currently on ebay & usually goes from $5.00 to $15.00 & it is even listed as a buy it now right now. The quality is the same as a DVD how do i know because i own it on laser disc & watched it last night it may have been the late 1960s or early 1970s when i first saw it on TV also the CBS station back then showed these on a Saturday afternoon where the characters came on with the song on with the show. It is a great cartoon & with cable today its hard to believe that it is too risqué to be shown.
