stings.

Added DiffLines:

** Also happens in "Crook Who Cried Wolf" multiple times where everyone assumes Loopy is a crook in a wolf mask.
* PoorlyDisguisedPilot: Towards the end of the series this trope seems to crop up a lot. If the presence of the aforementioned Bigelow Mouse wasn't a tip-off, in some of these shorts like the ones with Braxton Bear it is also as if Loopy has walked into these other character's shorts.
** Of course at the time most of HB's funny animal characters were on tv shows with ThreeShorts each. Loopy was a theatrical series, perhaps these characters were in the running to be his backup segments if he went to television.


* ShoutOut: As per usual in Creator/HannaBarbera cartoons in "Not in Nottingham" this version of Robin Hood shows Loopy a list of "do-gooders who also want to join his band." Among them naturally are ''WesternAnimation/YogiBear'', ''WesternAnimation/HuckleberryHound'', ''WesternAnimation/ToucheTurtle'' among others.
