''Honey's Money'' is a 1962 WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes animated short starring Yosemite Sam. It is a member of Literature/The100GreatestLooneyTunes. It was directed by Creator/FrizFreleng.

Yosemite Sam finds out that a local widow has inherited five million dollars. He succeeds in marrying the widow, only to find out that she is a ballbusting shrew who forces him to do all the housework. She also reveals a hulking, dimwitted son that Sam has to look after. Sam tries and fails to get rid of the son, taking a lot of punishment in the process. In the end he leaves the house, only to realize that the abuse is worth five million dollars, whereupon he turns around and goes back.

The central premise and most of the gags are [[RecycledScript borrowed from]] the WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck cartoon "His Bitter Half", made a dozen years earlier. It was changed to make the stepson more likeable and the stepfather more hateable. Freleng recycled the script and gags yet again for the 1970 ''Roland and Ratfink'' cartoon "A Taste of Money".

!!Tropes:

* BitchInSheepsClothing: In line with the previous cartoon, the wealthy widow plays sweet long enough for Sam to marry her, upon which she immediately whips him into doing chores and taking care of her son that she had (somehow) kept secret from him.
* CheerfulChild: Wentworth. In contrast to the BrattyHalfPint used in "His Bitter Half", this rendition is a cheery if oafish lug whose oblivious to his step father trying to off him.
* ComedicSociopathy: All Looney Tunes cartoons have this, of course, but this one takes it to a new level when Sam tries to murder his innocent, trusting stepson.
* ADayInTheLimelight: This is the only cartoon in the entire Looney Tunes canon where Yosemite Sam stars instead of playing the antagonist. It is also the only one of two Yosemite Sam cartoons where he isn't paired against Bugs Bunny (the other being 1947's "Along Came Daffy").
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: In line with most other HenpeckedHusband cartoons, though Sam makes for a worthy AssholeVictim.
* GoldDigger: Sam. It backfires badly.
* HenpeckedHusband: Sam quickly realizes he bit off more than he can chew when his wife starts ordering him around.
* HouseHusband: Sam is forced to be this by his overbearing wife.
* MamaBear: With a stepfather like Yosemite Sam, that boy should be glad for having one.
* RecycledScript: As mentioned above, it's premise is based heavily off of the previous Daffy Duck cartoon "His Bitter Half".
* VillainProtagonist: As noted above, this is the only Looney Tunes short in which Sam is the star.
* [[WickedStepmother Wicked Stepfather]]: If trying to kill his stepson doesn't put Yosemite Sam into this trope, nothing will.
* WorthIt: Sam attempts to storm out at the end of the short much as Daffy did in it's predecessor, however the thought of five million dollars is enough to send him running back.
