From Justin Delbert :

This cartoon MIGHT HAVE gotten me in trouble at school once. There is a scene where the outlaw runs out of bullets so he uses his finger to shoot at the cops. Not sure if it was my fingers or my pencil, but a classmate and I pretended to have a shoot out, we were both told to "flip a card". Should have realized, but I was 9, that this was fresh off of both Columbine and 9/11. Oh well, no grudge against this cartoon because it's Tex Avery, and pre Flintstones might I add.
