When I Yoo Hoo (USA Dubbed Version)

When I Yoo Hoo is a 1936 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Friz Freleng.


In the feuding hillbilly domain of Hickory Holler (population 42 Weavers, 41 Mathews), the sheriff prescribes a rooster fight to determine the winner. The roosters get drunk on whiskey, and when both are declared the loser, the feud continues, but this time with the sheriff as the target.



  • This was the first cartoon to be reissued with the WARNER BROS. PICTURES INC, and A WARNER BROS. CARTOON., meaning that the reissues no longer credit Leon Schlesinger, thus replacing the closing titles as well with the given season's Color Rings. It wasn't until the 1949-50 season where Merrie Melodies originally released from 1944-1948 kept their original end titles.
  • The 1995 ending card is sped up to keep up with the music.

Status of original titles

The original credits and BR ending have been lost due to the LaserDisc "dubbed version" release, which also air on Boomerang.

A rare 16mm bootleg print on DailyMotion retains the 1945 end title, however, the ending stock is cut out by the 1941-55 ending cue, which was edited in a bootleg Italian version. The colors are very faded with a very bad red tint and the picture is very dull and grainy. It is unknown if an original AAP print of the cartoon exists.[1]
