    Trying to recall a Jay Ward Fractured Fairy Tale or Aesop Fable cartoon with an Arabian setting in which the "heavy" character of the story is having his efforts constantly thwarted by the hero. The "heavy" then making a quick comment to the hero; "what are you, a spy from Hanna-Barbera ?" I recall it being from about 1961. Does anyone recall or know where it can be found ?

    I believe the short in question is "The Teeth from Baghdad", a Fractured Fairy Tale, which is available in the Season 4 set of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends. I believe it was an in-joke to the voice actor playing the "hero", Daws Butler, who did a lot of HB work before he started working with Jay Ward.
