    I remember seeing this in elementary school in the mid seventies. Funny, don't recall the nude hanging on the saloon wall!

    @funnyman--> This animated film was originally a theatrical short released throughout Canadian cinemas and all over the world. Hope that helps!

    Would love to find out more about the time and place, where, and on what channel this was originally aired?
