Ricochet Rabbit & Droop-a-Long was a segment of Hanna-Barbera's The Magilla Gorilla Show, and later appeared on The Peter Potamus Show.

Background[edit]

Taking place in a Wild West setting, Ricochet Rabbit (voiced by Don Messick) worked as a sheriff in the town of Hoop 'n' Holler. Ricochet would bounce off stationary objects yelling "Ping-ping-ping!" His deputy Droop-a-Long Coyote (voiced by Mel Blanc impersonating Ken Curtis) was not as fast and was very clumsy.

In addition to his speed, which enabled him to outrun bullets, Ricochet used trick bullets against his opponents, including a bullet that would stop in mid-flight and strike the target with an impossibly oversized mallet, and another which would draw a target on his nose and punch it.

Ricochet Rabbit's catchphrase was "Ping, ping, PING!", followed by his name.
