''Hittin' the Trail for Hallelujah Land'' is a 1931 Merrie Melodies animated cartoon directed by [[Creator/HarmanAndIsing Rudy Ising]].

The film is infamous for being one of the WesternAnimation/CensoredEleven, although it is probably the ''least'' offensive of the 11, due to the {{Blackface}} characters being animal-like, as opposed to human - the only reason it IS on the list is due to its use of the racial epithet "Uncle Tom".

----
!! This cartoon contains examples of:
* DamselInDistress: Fluffy is nearly carried off by a DastardlyWhiplash.
* DarkReprise: The skeletons sing a reprise of the titular song while terrorising Uncle Tom.
* DastardlyWhiplash: One tries to kidnap Fluffy near the end of the cartoon.
* DemBones: Uncle Tom is menaced by three skeletons.
* KickTheDog: One of the skeletons literally kicks a skeleton dog.
* OhCrap: Uncle Tom's reaction when he realizes that he's landed in a graveyard.
* RandomEventsPlot: However, it has more of a plot than most Merrie Melodies of the time, which barely have any plot at all.
* TitleDrop: The cartoon opens with three blackface characters singing the titular song.
