Summary

Ricochet Rabbit (voiced by Don Messick) worked as a sheriff in a Western setting called Hoop 'n' Holler. Ricochet, true to his name, would bounce off all the walls yelling "ping-ping-ping!" His deputy Droop-a-Long Coyote (voiced by Mel Blanc impersonating Ken Curtis' Festus Haggen character from the TV Western, "Gunsmoke".) was never able to be as "jumpy" and would end up crashing through a window, or some similar accident except on one occasion when Ricochet and Droop-a-Long were running away from a bear. Unfortunately for both of them, the bear also managed to bounce off. In addition to his speed, Ricochet was known for using trick bullets against his opponents (for example, a bullet that would stop in mid-flight and hover while striking the bad guy with an impossibly oversized mallet or drawing a target on his nose and punching the target, or exploding after inside bigger compartments of the bullet). Ricochet Rabbit's catchphrase consisted of three quick pings; "ping, ping, PING!", followed by him referring to himself in the third person; "Ricochet Rabbit!"
