    I've never seen the original version before, but I knew it was released as a "Looney Tune" (as listed in various filmographies). The opening titles were interesting. What Jones (and Tedd Pierce) was satirizing was the famous radio show "DUFFY'S TAVERN", starring Ed "Archie" Gardner as a Brooklyn tavern manager [supposedly operating the worst beer joint in the world] dealing with his staff, and occasional guest stars who "dropped in". The opening was usually the same: a few bars of "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling" on a barroom piano, the phone rang, and you'd hear, "Hello, Duffy's Tavern, 'Where the Elite Meet To Eat', Archie the manager speaking, Duffy ain't here..oh, hello, Duffy!" Archie's not-too-bright assistant was "Finnegan" {"Duh.."}, played by Charles Cantor [later by Sid "Baby Huey" Raymond towards the end of the radio series]. That was the framework for the final Sniffles cartoon. I believe "Edward G. Robincat" was impersonated by Dick Nelson, also heard in "Rackeeer Rabbit".

    Excellent job! Never saw this cartoon with real opening and closing titles before. It was originally released as a "Looney Tune", but it was re-released as a "Blue Ribbon" except the "Merrie Melodies" end title. I've seen this short on WWOR-TV back in the late 80's and early 90's during "Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck & Friends", "The Bugs & Daffy Hour", "Bugs' Buddies" and a segment on "Steampipe Alley" hosted by Mario Cantone.
