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 Warner Bros.-Seven Arts 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 (four leading wheels, four driving wheels, and no trailing wheels), which is called an "American" type due to the large number of the type that were produced and used in the United States.
Merlin's head without his hat is flat in this short, while in "Merlin the Magic Mouse" his head had a tuft of hair.
Merlin: Ah, yes, Second Banana, my boy, tonight we open in Powwow City, once again to astound the public of one of my classic performances in the art of prestigi-prestigi- in the art of magic. If our luck holds out.
Second Banana: Uh oh, I think our luck just ran out.
Merlin: Ah, yes, yes, yes, tickets.
Merlin: Got em' right here. Hmm, let's see...
Merlin: You said tickets, didn't you?
Merlin: Ah, here we are, my good man.
I said tickets, not flowers.
Merlin: Oh, yes, tickets.
Merlin: Slipped my mind for a minute there.
Merlin: Let's see... where did I put those tickets?
Merlin: The president of the railroad will hear about this!
Merlin: Oh, an unfortunate incident, my boy, but if we start walking, we'll get to Powwow City by nightfall.
Merlin: But first, a little sustenance.
Merlin: Atascadero Escondido!
Lo: Huh? What kind magic hat that?
Merlin: Dig in, my boy, dig in.
Lo: Me gotta have magic hat!
Merlin: Oh, a delicious kidney.
Merlin: Unhand my hat, you scoudrel!
Lo: Oh boy! Rabbit. Me eat!
Merlin: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, or whatever the case may be.
