Sport Chumpions is a 1941 Merrie Melodies short directed by Friz Freleng.


A spoof on sports champions and sporting events, "bringing you lowlights in the world of sports," including ping pong, skiing, track and field, basketball, baseball, football (at "Avery Memorial Stadium"), auto racing, swimming, and billiards. Gags include an archery expert hitting the bulls-eye every time; then the camera pulls back to reveal the champion standing a foot away from the target. A gag on a bicycle race has the racers going around and around and around, then stopping suddenly to say, "Monotonous, isn't it!" A diving exhibition shows such popular dives as the swan dive, the jackknife and "Sloppy Joe's.


  • The "Avery Memorial Stadium" is a reference to Tex Avery.
  • The EU 1995 Dubbed print of this short retains its original ending music cue, while the US counterpart has its original ending music theme replaced with 1938-41 "Merrily We Roll Along" one.
  • This is the final cartoon to use the yellow-orange rings.
