Indexer Notes

End of story segues into next story. This story is based on the Huckleberry Hound TV cartoon "Huckleberry Hound Meets Wee Willie" (1958) per Karl Wilcox. Pencils and inks credits for this sequence from Alberto Becattini. The first line is a parody/tribute to the Jack Webb police series "Dragnet". Huck speaks directly to the reader in the final panel - even "turning the page" to get to the next story.

Feature Logo

Genre
anthropomorphic-funny animals
Characters
Huckleberry Hound, bird, fox; bear
Synopsis
A little bird warns Huck about a bear and in gratitude Huck tells him that if he's ever in trouble, just to whistle. A fox spends the rest of the story stalking the little bird, who has to keep calling on Huck for help.
Reprints
Keywords
"If-you-get-into-trouble-just-whistle!"; bear; bird; forest setting; fox; one-character-desiring-another-as-a-meal; protector; reused story

Indexer Notes

Pencils and inks credits for this sequence from Alberto Becattini. The little bird and fox, with Huck thrown into the mix as the bird's protector, presages the "core situation" of Hanna-Barbera's later Yakky Doodle cartoons, with Fibber Fox and Chopper the Bulldog. The "If-you-get-into-trouble-just-whistle!" idea goes back with Hanna-Barbera to Tom and Jerry, and forward with the same producers to Pixie, Dixie, and Mr. Jinks.
