Crow's Feat 1962

Crows' Feat is a 1962 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Friz Freleng and Hawley Pratt. The short features the final appearance of Elmer Fudd from the Golden Age of American Animation.


Two Mexican crows, Jose and Manuel, are flying to Guadalajara on the wings of an airplane. They spot a corn field on the ground below and dive into it. The corn field is guarded by a rifle-toting Elmer Fudd, whom the two lame-brained crows unsuccessfully try to outwit.



On Cartoon Network and Boomerang Latin America the entire scene where Elmer tricks Jose and Manuel into taking a grenade which the two crows mistake it for corn, along with the grenade exploding right onto Jose's face, is cut, due to the drug references in the song, La Cucaracha which the two crows are singing when stealing the corn from the start of this scene (evidence in here: Other CN/Boomerang feeds however air this scene uncut.


  • Elmer Fudd had no dialogue at all in this cartoon.
  • Bugs Bunny is mentioned by by both Jose and Manuel when the two crows first encounter the Elmer Fudd scarecrow. They even mention references to the classic Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd cartoons of the 40s and 50s (such as Elmer chasing and hunting Bugs), and at one point Jose imitates Bugs' catchphrase "What's up, Doc?".
  • This cartoon is notable in pairing the dimwit characters Elmer Fudd and Jose and Manuel in the same cartoon. Here a comparison is made between the three characters, proving both Jose and Manuel to be a lot dumber than Elmer, considering how many times Elmer successfully outwits both crows in this cartoon.
