Mighty Hunters is a 1940 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Chuck Jones, with story by Dave Monahan.


Native American children are preparing for hunting, by dancing. The hunters, however, prove that they are no more than a threat to themselves. A duo of hunters attempt to catch a squirrel, but they fail. Another hunter attempts to get a donkey ride, but fails miserably. But the worst part comes when one of the hunter's brother gets the attention of a bear who wants his brother candy. The hunters find themselves being chased off a cliff, and the bear gets the candy, and the hunters go home with nothing.



Original titles, and restored ending card from Elmer's Candid Camera


This is the only cartoon to be reissued as a Blue Ribbon before 1956 to keep its original title cards, but not the Color Rings.
