Merrie Melodies, Feud With a Deud (Restored)

Feud with a Dude is a 1968 Merrie Melodies short directed by Alex Lovy.


One morning, the Hatfields and the McCoys, two mountain families, wake up for their daily attack on each other. Merlin the Magic Mouse and his sidekick Second Banana fly their magic carpet over the Ozarks mountain, but are shot down. Merlin and Second Banana are threatened to be blasted if they don't choose a side, but Merlin attempts to pacify the two families. They state this is all because each family stole the other's animals, so Merlin produces the missing animals from his magic hat. However, Merlin is the new target; thinking that he is the one who is responsible for starting the feud in the first place, the hillbillies shoot after him and Second Banana.

Merlin first throws an apple out of his magic hat, which grows into an apple tree into which the hillbillies slam. They hide in a chicken coop, where Merlin hypnotizes someone who nearly caught him. This allows them to buy time, and Merlin also pulls out a door to further stall the leading hillbillies. However, they are cornered by the hillbillies' relatives, so Merlin pulls a rocket out of his hat. He and Second Banana escape using real NASA rocket footage, while the hillbillies continue to fight. Merlin will have to wait for a few orbits around Earth before he can land for his next show.
