    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (13)

      • Don't Give Up the Sheep is available on disc 3 of Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 1 (2003).

      • When aired on ABC, the scene from Don't Give Up the Sheep where Ralph is getting spanked by Sam was cut.

      • The music heard while the title card for Don't Give Up the Sheep is seen is "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep" Like Steal Wool.

      • Don't Give Up the Sheep was the first cartoon to feature Ralph Wolf and Sam Sheepdog, who would go on to appear in five more animated shorts between 1954 and 1963, all of them directed by Chuck Jones and all of them having a similar plot.

      • Don't Give Up the Sheep was released theatrically on January 3, 1953. It was directed by Chuck Jones, and written by Michael Maltese.

      • Both CBS and ABC cut the scene from A Bird in a Guilty Cage where Sylvester chases Tweety through a dollhouse.

      • The gag seen in A Bird In A Guilty Cage featuring a gun going into a hole, only for it to inexplicably come out from another, with a different bow tied to it, would later be used in two other Looney Tunes cartoons: A Star Is Bored (1956, also directed by Friz Freleng) and Tease for Two (1965, directed by Robert McKimson).

      • A Bird in a Guilty Cage was released theatrically on August 30, 1952. It was directed by Friz Freleng and written by Warren Foster.

      • When aired on CBS, the start of the boxing match between Foghorn Leghorn and Barnyard Dawg from Mother Was a Rooster was cut.

      • Mother Was A Rooster was the last released cartoon scored by Milt Franklyn. Bill Lava would take over as composer for Looney Tunes cartoons starting with Good Noose (also 1962) until the cartoon department's closure in 1969.

      • Mother was a Rooster was originally released theatrically on October 20, 1962. It was produced by David H. DePatie, directed by Robert McKimson and written by David Detiege.

      • Shishkabugs is the shortest Bugs Bunny short ever made in the Golden Age of American animation, running for less than six minutes.

      • Shishkabugs was released theatrically on December 8, 1962. It was directed by Friz Freleng and produced by David H. DePatie.

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (5)

      • Don't Give Up the Sheep


        The title of the cartoon is a play on the expression "Don't Give Up the Ship".


         

      • Stacy's


        The store Sylvester chases Tweety through during A Bird in a Guilty Cage is called Stacy's, as a parody of the well-known Macy's chain of department stores, founded by Rowland Hussey Macy in 1858.


         

      • A Bird in a Guilty Cage


        The title of the cartoon is a spoof on A Bird in a Guilded Cage, a song composed by Arthur J. Lamb and Harry Von Tilzer in 1899.


         

      • Honorable royal majestic graciousness


        The King seen in Shishkabugs who keeps abusing Yosemite Sam is supposedly a caricature of actor Charles Laughton (1 July 1899 – 15 December 1962), who frequently played kings and similar heads of state in movies such as The Private Life of Henry VIII (1933), Mutiny on the Bounty (1935) or Captain Kidd (1945).


         

      • Shishkabugs


        The title of the cartoon is a play on shish kebab, a type of grilled meat.
