Name That Cartoon: "We Fight"
January 19, 2017 8:11 PM   Subscribe

This is like name that tune with barely any lyrics, but instead it's a cartoon from the 80's or 90's that I remember only one scene of.

Scene involved what I believe was an anthropomorphic animal, maybe a wolf or a big cat, female, squinting her eyes and saying "We fight" in a menacing way. It was definitely in response to an either/or question, where the answer was "We fight."

Would have been in the US, late 80's or early 90's. Definitely a cartoon, could have been a cartoon movie but more likely a serialized Saturday morning cartoon. Youtube scene would be amazing, but even some leads on what cartoons to pursue would help. Maybe you can jog my memory more?

The Itchy and Scratchy Show from the Simpsons?

Lyrics from memory:

We fight and fight, and fight and fight and fight.
Fight, fight, fight! Fight, fight, fight!
The Itchy and Scratchy Show!

Sorry to thread sit - this was a menacing scene. Not a funny cartoon in any way. Itchy and Scratchy are the wrong genre. Pretty sure the show was serialized in some way and this was a part of an ongoing plot, maybe a war or battle.

Maybe something from Samurai Jack?

Disney's Gargoyles?

Sounds like something Desdemona might say.

Other talking animals this question made me think of:
He-Man had Battle Cat
Simba's mom Sarabi from The Lion King
Bagheera, the panther from Jungle Book
Watership Down had some weird scary rabbit and fox moments
So did The Plague Dogs

Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds

Around the World with Willy Fog

On the less-anthropomorphic (but still talking-animals) side, The Animals of Farthing Wood

To me, I don't think you're going to get a solid answer on this, because it's a really common line of dialogue/trope. I'm sure there's a page on TV Tropes for it.

I can't find a clip online to back it up, nor could I find it in the script, but I could have sworn this was Mrs. Fox (Felicity) in Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox...

Could it have been Garfield on the Town (1983)?

(My baby brother used to love Garfield.)
