For me, the best thing about Blake Edwards’ Breakfast at Tiffany’s is its quirky theme song, Johnny Mercer and Henry Mancini’s Moon River. It includes the somewhat mysterious line “…my huckleberry friend.”
And the movie itself has a scene (see screen grab at left) in which Audrey Hepburn briefly dons a Huckleberry Hound mask in a five-and-dime store.
So my question is this: Is “…my huckleberry friend” actually a reference to Huck Hound? If you’ve got a theory–assuming you care about this at all–I’d love to hear it.
Oh, and a bonus trivia question (courtesy of Andrew Leal): Besides the mask scene, name one other significant Hanna-Barbera connection in this movie.
