Trivia

This is the last Looney Tune. The studio closed before the cartoon came out. The DePatie-Freleng Entreprises took over the studio shortly after it closed and made some more cartoons featuring some Looney Tunes characters including Speedy Gonzales, Daffy Duck and Road Runner, but by most, this is considered the end.

Great final short from the original Warner Bros. Animation
27 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this short on the new Looney Tunes Golden Collection Vol. 5 DVD set. It was the last short from the original Warner Bros. Animation studio before closing in 1963 and having DePatie-Freleng take over the Looney Tunes series. Coincidentally, this short actually DOES resemble a DePatie-Freleng cartoon! For one thing, it uses the "modernized" abstract Looney Tunes opening and closing sequence with the bizarre theme music that was used on all LT shorts from 1965 onward. The logo was originally intended for stylized one-shot cartoons from the original studio, the first two being "Now Hear This" (done in a totally-abstract, artistic style by Chuck Jones) and "Bartholomew Versus the Wheel" (drawn in a James Thuber-style and directed by Robert McKimson). This cartoon is somewhat stylized, but in a manner so it resembles the mid-to-late 1960s Pink Panther cartoons. Then again, many of the Warners' staff that worked on this cartoon went to work for DePatie-Freleng afterward, so it makes sense. This Mexican twist on the old Cinderella story is also rather amusing. Bill Lava's Mexican music works here instead of those crappy Speedy vs. Daffy cartoons he would later go on to score at DePatie-Freleng. The backgrounds look very UPA-ish and the thick-line drawings are pleasing to look at. I don't think Cartoon Network aired this very often when they were showing Looney Tunes. They might've been worried that it was politically incorrect and all that junk. However, this is one latter-day Looney Tunes short I highly recommend!
