Fistic Mystic provides some amusement for the last Looney Tunes cartoon on a regular production schedule
20 January 2009 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Just watched on YouTube this cartoon that, according to IMDb, is the last Warner Bros. Looney Tune one from the series that began with the very first WB animated short, Sinkin' in the Bathtub, in 1930. This is a Merlin the Magic Mouse one with Larry Storch providing the voices of him and his sidekick, Second Banana. They're in a western town whose population is reduced by 2 (as seen on the town sign when the numbers change) after the bad guy shoots them (off screen, of course). After a couple of scenes where Merlin "defeats" this bad guy, he has Second Banana challenge him to a boxing match. To ensure victory, Merlin provides some magic gloves...Director Bob McKimson provides some pretty good timed punches to the bad guy that gave me some chuckles when I watched this. So while the animation is not the greatest, there still are some good movements and poses for whatever limited means the animators had at their disposal. So on that note, Fistic Mystic is worth a look. P.S. The Bill Lava version of "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down" that appeared in most of these '60s Warner cartoons is a bit different here and, also according to IMDb, was only used in this particular cartoon.
