Super Chief

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    Famed passenger train of the Atchison, Topeka and Sante Fe Railroad. The name is spoofed in a shot in Hare Trigger (Freleng, 1945), with a logo on a train engine showing an Indian in a Superman uniform, and again in The Big Snooze (Clampett, 1946), with Bugs and a raft of little Bugses making like a train over a recumbent Elmer Fudd. Injun Joe from Wagon Heels (Clampett, 1945) is referred to as The Super Chief (“whoo-whooo!”).
