Hocus Pocus Powwow is a 1968 Looney Tunes cartoon.


Merlin the Magic Mouse and his sidekick, Second Banana, are kicked off a train in the middle of Indian territory. A dopey American Indian, Lo, notices Merlin preparing a meal with his magic hat, and wants the hat for himself.


  • This is the only W7 cartoon to use Warner's version of the falling object whistle (which is used around the end of the cartoon, after Merlin lights up a dynamite to Lo the Indian and blows up, blasting him up until he falls on the ground).
  • It is also the only Merlin cartoon to use Hanna-Barbera's falling object whistle (used when the Lo spin falls off a cliff). The other Merlin cartoons used instead a different Hanna-Barbera falling object whistle.
  • Beginning with this cartoon, the color scheme on the "Abstract W7" opening and closing logos are changed, so the background is now blue and the W7 shield is yellow.
  • The engine on the train is a 4-4-0 engine or an American type steam locomotive. These types of engines were used most common on American railroads during the 1800s and 1830s until 1928, and were given the name "American" in 1872, because of how they did all the work of every railroad in the United States, and have four wheels (four leading wheels, four driving wheels, and no trailing wheels).
