Misce-Looney-Ous Blog Commentaries: "Injun Trouble"

Here's the final "classic" Warner Bros. cartoon ever made: "Injun Trouble" from 1969. Directed by Robert McKimson and starring Cool Cat, it's one of the best Cool Cat shorts and, quite possibly, the rarest Warner cartoon of all.

BEST COOL CAT SHORT EVER.

It would've been cool if the people at Warner Bros. Animation ended this with a special farewell sort of title card, like a special "THAT'S ALL, FOLKS!" animation integrated with the traditional "jumping OO" closing. That is, if they knew this was their final cartoon, until a demon named Larry Doyle entered the scene.

This cartoon is the very last Merrie Melodies Cartoon (from the early 30's to the late 60's), the very last Cool Cat Cartoon, the very last Robert McKimson's cartoon, the very last Warner Brothers-Seven Arts Cartoon, the very last Larry Storch's Warner Brothers Cartoon, the very last cartoon produced by William L. Hendricks, the very last cartoon has William Lava's music, and the very last cartoon from Warner Brothers in the studio ever!!!

The Merry Go Round Broke Down Theme song is used until the very end. The creators, Cliff Friend, a Finno-Swedish-American, and Dave Franklin, went Home to be with the Lord, almost 5 years and the following year, respectively.

It seems that the cartoon Injun Trouble, the Cool Cat Cartoon, will remain in the Warner Brothers Vaults, permanently. It is unlikely be on United States television.

CensorshipOwing to controversy over its stereotyping of Native Americans the cartoon has never been shown by United States television broadcasters, or released on video. While bootleg versions are available (most commonly with a timecode on the print), it is one of the rarest of all Warner Bros. cartoons
