A colorized version was produced in Korea by Fred Ladd, for Sunset Productions, the copyright holder at the time. It was made by re-drawing the cels and backgrounds. The animation in this version is inferior, since many drawings were left out, causing jerky movement.

Plot

The cartoon shows police officer Foxy who deals with armed criminals, traffic violations, and his girlfriend's huge dog. The main action involves a group of gangsters kidnapping Foxy's girlfriend while making their getaway; Foxy chases them on a mechanical horse, rescues his girlfriend, and puts the criminals in jail—only to be shot in the back by a crow.

Availability

One More Time is available on disc 3 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 6.
