A Horsefly Fleas is an animated cartoon short released by Warner Bros. in 1947. It was written by Warren Foster and directed by Robert McKimson.[1] The short stars A. Flea, the nearly-microscopic protagonist of An Itch in Time from 1943. It is rarely aired today due to stereotypical portrayals of (anthropomorphic flea versions of) Native Americans.

Originally released in Cinecolor, the cartoon was reissued in three-strip Technicolor during the 1955-56 season.


This cartoon was released on DVD and Blu-ray with the original titles and Cinecolor version restored on the Looney Tunes Platinum Collection: Volume 2.
