When I Yoo Hoo (1936)
7min · Animation, Family, Short · 27 June 1936
It's the Weavers vs. the Mathews in Hickory Holler. The Weavers are singing (the title song), the Mathews are sleeping. They wake up and start shooting, which ends the song. A Weaver coonskin cap is shot off, and proves not to be quite dead yet. The sheriff drives up in a very broken-down car and nails up a notice: The feud is to be settled by a rooster fight at Higgins' Barn. The fight is on: The roosters circle each other (getting their necks tangled). They proceed to mix it up, to the William Tell Overture (the storm). The Mathews rooster gets a shot of moonshine, and is soon bashing his opponent. They crash into each other and knock each other out; the sheriff tries declaring either a winner, or a draw, but that only gets the people more riled up; everyone piles into the ring as the roosters watch.
