Hop, Skip and a Chump is a 1942 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Friz Freleng. It was reissued as a Blue Ribbon on March 5, 1949, titled Hop Skip and a Chump.
A grasshopper named Hopalong Casserole is being chased by two blackbirds modeled after Laurel and Hardy. He manages to outwit them easily, but makes a fatal mistake of believing a closed iris shot can shield him from his enemies.
The 1995 Turner dubbed version seen on television has extremely horrible color corrections for some reason.
The original title card is currently lost, but included a comma after "Hop" as seen on the lobby card below.
