My Green Fedora is a 1935 Merrie Melodies animated short film short directed by Friz Freleng, produced by Leon Schlesinger and animated by Chuck Jones, and Robert Clampett. The film was released in the United States on May 4, 1935. It features a song, "I'm Wearin' My Green Fedora," written by songwriters, Al Sherman, Al Lewis, and Joseph Meyer specially for this short.


Peter Rabbit is assigned by his mother to babysit his baby brother Elmer. Peter reluctantly does so, though nothing he tries will stop his baby brother from crying. What works is Peter dressing in some old clothes, including a green fedora. He sings a song to match the hat. When Peter is not looking, a weasel snatches the baby and runs off to the tunnels underneath the house. Peter gives chase and manages to take care of both the weasel and Elmer with a garden hose.
