Episode #3: Hare-Less Wolf A wolf is ordered by his wife to hunt them some supper for the night.

Episode #5: Hyde and Go Tweet While hunting Tweety once again, Sylvester forces him to hide in Dr. Jekyll's formula, which turns him into a monster.

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (15)

      • Goldimouse and the Three Cats is one of only two cartoons in which Sylvester's wife appears. Her other appearance was in A Mouse Divided (1953, also directed by Friz Freleng).

      • When aired on ABC, Hyde and Go Tweet was edited. Sylvester's lines when preparing to jump out the window were removed, presumably because of its allusions to suicide.

      • Hyde and Go Tweet was the third and final entry in a series of Looney Tunes cartoons parodying the Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (published by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1886), all of them directed by Friz Freleng. The other cartoons were Dr. Jerkyl's Hide (1954, starring Sylvester) and Hyde and Hare (1955, starring Bugs Bunny).

      • Hyde and Go Tweet was originally released theatrically on May 14, 1960. It was directed by Friz Freleng and written by Mike Maltese.

      • Goldimouse and the Three Cats was originally released theatrically on 15 March, 1960. It was directed by Friz Freleng and written by Mike Maltese.

      • When aired on ABC, Hare-Less Wolf was edited. All of the explosives gags and the beginning scene where, after Charles M. Wolf is chased out of the house by his wife, he whispers to the audience: "I hate her," and gets nailed in the head with a frying pan were removed.

      • Hare-Less Wolf is the second and final appearance of Charles M. Wolf in the classic Looney Tunes animated shorts. He was first seen in Red Riding Hoodwinked (1955), where he looked differently, more similar in appearance to Sylvester. His name is only revealed in his final cartoon, and it is most likely a reference to the director of the short, Charles M. Jones (more commonly known as Chuck Jones).

      • Hare-Less Wolf was originally released theatrically on February 1, 1958. It was directed by Chuck Jones and produced by John Burton, Sr.

      • Sandy Claws marked the final time Granny was voiced by Bea Benaderet, who was replaced by June Foray in all her further animated appearances.

      • Sandy Claws was originally released theatrically on April 2, 1955. It was directed by Friz Freleng and produced by Eddie Selzer.

      • When aired on CBS, Knighty Knight Bugs was slightly censored. The scene where Yosemite Sam climbs the rope and gets hit by Bugs' croquet mallet and his subsequent sliding up and down the rope was cut.

      • Knighty Knight Bugs is available uncut on Disc 1 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 4 DVD set, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Academy Awards Animation Collection, and The Essential Bugs Bunny DVDs.

      • Knighty Knight Bugs was the third Bugs Bunny cartoon to be nominated for an Academy Award (and the first, and only one to actually win an Oscar). The other nominated cartoons featuring Bugs were A Wild Hare (in 1940) and Hiawatha's Rabbit Hunt (in 1941).

      • Knighty Knight Bugs is the only Bugs Bunny cartoon to win an Academy Award. In 1959, this cartoon beat Paul Bunyan (produced by Walt Disney Studios) and Sidney's Family Tree (from Terrytoons studios) and won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short. The Oscar was presented to John W. Burton, the producer of this cartoon, who for some reason was not listed in the opening credits.

      • Knighty Knight Bugs was originally released in theaters on August 23, 1958. It is directed by Friz Freleng and written by Warren Foster.
