Weasel Stop is a 1956 Looney Tunes short directed by Robert McKimson. It was later re-released as a Merrie Melodies Blue Ribbon reissue.


The Weasel is at it again, attempting to steal chickens. Foghorn Leghorn confronts the watchdog (not the Barnyard Dawg, but a shaggy dog who sounds like Andy Griffith), who appears to be too lazy about the situation but is actually on top of it. Foghorn is annoyed by how the laid-back dog acts when he's guarding the chickens. Foghorn attempts to play jokes on the dog, but he's too smart to be fooled. When the weasel arrives looking for a hen or two, Foghorn attempts to turn the weasel against the dog, but the dog is able to counter it, not ending well for Foghorn or the weasel.




  • Although this cartoon is a Merrie Melodies Blue Ribbon short, it uses the Looney Tunes opening and closing themes.


  • There are two possible original ending titles, green Color Rings or red rings because the cartoons released this year tended to mix up the ending titles.
  • This short used to play in PAL audio when shown on Cartoon Network or Boomerang before switching to the restored NTSC version on modern Boomerang airings.
