Merrie Melodies - Two Gophers from Texas (1948)
Two Gophers from Texas is a 1948 Warner Bros. Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Arthur Davis. It was released on January 17, 1948, and features the Goofy Gophers.
This short was originally released in Cinecolor, but was re-released as a Blue Ribbon Reissue in 3-hue Technicolor.
This is the first cartoon where the Goofy Gophers have brown and tan fur, as opposed to grey and white fur as in their previous appearance.
This is the only Goofy Gophers short that was the direction was completely done by Arthur Davis.
Whereas their previous short, "The Goofy Gophers", was originally planned by Bob Clampett, but was finished by Davis after Clampett's departure in 1945.
Their next short, "A Ham in a Role", was started by Davis, but finished by Robert McKimson after Davis' unit was shut down in 1947, when the animation studio was cutting costs.
The dog in this short is the same one that previously appeared in "The Goofy Gophers" from a year before, he would appear one more time with the Goofy Gophers in "A Ham in a Role" from a year after this short.
Coincidentally, this is the only appearance of the dog in a Merrie Melodies short, as his two other appearances were part of the Looney Tunes series.
The United Kingdom airs this cartoon on Cartoon Network and Boomerang as a "Proto-dubbed print", meaning that it has the same color correction as well as non-pan-and-scan, as with the case of the "official" European dubbed print, but keeps the reissue end card and audio end cue. Other European countries air the "official" EU Turner dubbed print which has the same altered ending music cue (and virtually identical 1947-48 dubbed ending card) as the USA Turner dubbed version which has the same altered ending music cue. Hence this fact might prove there is two EU prints of this short.
Some airings of this cartoon's USA 1995 dubbed version print on CN/Boomerang USA have the black screens in-between the fade-outs edited out for time (evidence in the video in the infobox here), though the cartoon's USA 1995 dubbed version print does exist without the black screens edited out. The EU dubbed version print of the cartoon however doesn't have the black screens removed
