Storyline

Foxy is a policeman on the beat. He has no trouble with a single criminal who pops out of a trashcan and sprays bullets at him with a machine gun. Foxy has his own gun. It shoots out an expandable arm with a platform on the end. A mouse with a mallet stands on the platform and knocks the criminal unconscious. Foxy has a bit more trouble with a hippo who runs him over. She begs him not to fine her. He gives in, but throws a trashcan over her head to show his contempt. Foxy's real trouble begins with a gang of criminals armed with a grenade, a machine gun and mouthfuls of tobacco juice. They kidnap Foxy's girlfriend. The bushy-tailed cop hops on a wooden horse, and the chase is on. Written by J. Spurlin

Trivia

At the 00:54 mark a miniature version of Foxy pops out of Foxy's gun and hits the gangster on the head. This little character is an almost exact version of Mickey Mouse, even more so than Foxy, who was the Merrie Melodies answer to the Walt Disney star. See more »

Foxy appears for one last time
28 February 2017 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

The third Foxy cartoon after 'Lady, Play Your Mandolin!' and 'Smile, Darn Ya Smile', 'One More Time' like those two is not great but still pretty good, and perhaps the best of the three.

Once again, 'One More Time's' story is limited, with a thin structure, little sense and is somewhat derivative. Some of the sound is slightly rough and not as crisp as it could have been even for an early cartoon.

Animation is uneven, the black and white is crisp and there are some lovely details, good flexibility and perspective visuals, but other parts are on the crude side like with the character designs.

However, much of the animation is not bad and generally it's the best-looking of the three Foxy cartoons. The music is suitably peppy and devilish, while there is a nice mix of amusing and dark moments. The most note-worthy example of the latter being a pretty ballsy ending, the one thing surprising about the story. Foxy is the most compelling and expressive of all three of his cartoons.

In summary, Foxy's last cartoon is a decent one. 7/10 Bethany Cox
