In an effort to put "Hoot Kloot" theatrical series into The Pink Panther Show (1969), DePatie-Freleng showed this short to NBC. NBC executives rejected the idea, because of the scene with the Jewish Indian in this cartoon. "Hoot Kloot" series was finally aired on the "Pink Panther" animated block years later in Cartoon Network. See more »
1972 was the last year that Walter Lantz produced theatrical cartoons. He looked at the figures, realized that it would take ten years for that year's production to break even -- assuming things didn't become even more dire -- and called it a day.
Not so at DePatie-Freleng, where this cartoon was produced -- sort of. Although the old Termite Terrace crew was credited, the actual work was farmed out. I've already wasted my time looking at it. There's no need for you to waste yours.
Neither is there much of interest in the script. Kloot (modeled on the celebrity of the "Dodge Sheriff" from truck commercials) wanders into a town and has some interaction with some Indians.
