The Last Angry Moose is the sixth story arc from the second season of Rocky and His Friends. It was broadcast on ABC during the 1960–1961 television season. It depicts Bullwinkle using his mattress money to seek Hollywood fame under the name "Crag Antler", supervised by Boris posing as director D.W. Grifter.

Synopsis[edit]

Frostbite Falls has recently opened its first movie theater, which shares space with a pet shop, and Rocky and Bullwinkle attend the premiere of A Trolley Named Tallulah. Bullwinkle claims that he can act just as convincingly as its star, March Marlow. Attempting to do so, several women nearby faint (due to a couple of unseen mice). Thinking he really does have acting talent, Bullwinkle takes his money-stuffed mattress, and heads for Hollywood; Rocky, in a rare show of anger toward his friend, refuses to come before his conscience informs him that his presence is essential to the plot of the storyline. Rocky reluctantly tags along.

While on the train from Frostbite Falls to Hollywood on the Union Pathetic railway, Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale, coincidentally in the same rail car, discover Bullwinkle's large stash of money and scheme to steal it. Upon arriving in Hollywood, Bullwinkle is quickly greeted by talent scount D.W. Grifter, one of Boris's numerous disguises. Boris also takes on the persona of an acting coach, helping to empty Bullwinkle's mattress, until finally Bullwinkle makes his debut as Crag Antler in the film "The Last Angry Moose". "The Last Angry Moose" becomes a comedy sensation, earning Bullwinkle back all of his money; however, upon hearing the audience laughing instead of taking him seriously, Bullwinkle and Rocky return to Frostbite Falls, and Bullwinkle considers his acting career to be finished.

Trivia[edit]

  • In this arc Boris and Natasha technically win due to the fact they get away with the whole of Bullwinkle's mattress (the net effect does not harm Bullwinkle, since he eventually earns the same amount of money back through his acting).
  • This is one of the unusual cases where Boris and Natasha are acting solely on their own greed and not as agents for their Pottsylvanian overlords.
