39 years and roughly one thousand cartoons after “Sinkin’ in the Bathtub”, Warner Bros. Cartoons came to an end with an unfortunately titled short named “Injun Trouble.” Last fall I posted a link to this cartoon, with Matthew Hunter’s commentary.
For obvious reasons, it’s generally been kept off television, and is hard to find. But it was included in 1972’s syndicated “The Merrie Melodies Show.” And that series is now airing on Teletoon Retro. Incredibly, the episode in question aired this week. I marvel at this network’s ability to come up with rare stuff like this, and to air it in pretty much its original form.
