My Little Buckaroo is a 1938 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Friz Freleng.


It's 1872 in Boiled Beef, Texas. The narrator, voiced by Tedd Pierce, announces that a thief is robbing the town of their possessions. Through the night, he runs through the county border line everyday so he can be safe from the townsmen who chase him. But one day, a sheriff pig sees his antics and decides to follow him.

The pig tries to shoot the thief with a gun, but he just shoots back. Everytime the thief shoots back, the pig gets a new hat, eventually returning back to the old one. The thief then sees as the road ends, then takes an escalator to escape. The pig follows and eventually both of them are riding on their horses down many sloped hills. They then ride down a large slope.

The pig's horse wants to slide down the slope again. The pig agrees, but this allows the thief to get away. As a final attempt, the pig uses his rope to reel in the thief.

The pig is relaxing in his office while the thief's head is stuck onto a wood carving, with the rest of him behind. He tries to get out of it, but he can't, as the cartoon irises out.


  • This is the oldest Blue Ribbon to survive to this day, as A Feud There Was was replaced with another reissue.
  • The USA dubbed version has the 1938-41 rendition of Merrily We Roll Along while the European dubbed version keeps the original ending music.[1]
  • The USA dubbed version has red borders and the EU has none.
