About Rhoda

When Elmyra discovers that Rhoda is her new neighbor, she tries to make friends with her, but Rhoda calls her a "butthead" and demands she in turn be called "Queen". She then says she will be best friends with Elmyra if she gives her the bow on top of her head, and ends up forcibly taking it and having Elmyra swear "no take-backs".

At Elmyra's house, Elmyra shows her a picture of Montana Max (which Elmyra considers her "boyfriend"), but with no respect for her property, Rhoda tosses the picture out the window and makes a threat (a constant threat of not being Elmyra's best friend anymore if she doesn't do what she says) to Elmyra to break her piggie bank "Mr. Pigster" and spend all her money at the movies with her. At the theater, they see Montana Max, and Rhoda threatens Elmyra to say she isn't his girlfriend anymore, which Elmyra reluctantly does. Rhoda proclaims to be Monty's girlfriend now, and demands Elmyra to get her some popcorn (which Elmyra spends her last nickel on). When Elmyra returns, Monty dumps a cherry cola in Rhoda's face and pushes her aside, telling her, "Nobody calls me a dumb-butt geek and gets away with it!" and Elmyra is pleased exclaiming, "That's my baby!" Embarrassed, Rhoda drags Elmyra back to her house.

When the girls arrive back at Elmyra's house, Rhoda gives Elmyra back her bow and tells her she wants nothing to do with her, until she sees Furrball (Elmyra's pet cat), and tries to force Elmyra to give him to her. Having put up with all the trouble Rhoda put her through all day, Elmyra refuses to give her Furrball and tells her that she'd rather lose a friend like her than give up her "fuzzy little Furrball-head", leaving Rhoda angry and in tears. Elmyra realizes while talking to Furrball about their friendship that someone doesn't have to do things for the other to remain friends. However, at the end of the cartoon, Rhoda tells Elmyra she'll be her best friend again if she gets the car keys from her mother and drive her to Utah, which Elmyra instantly agrees to.


  • Rhoda Queen resembles and shares the same first name as Rhoda Penmark, of the 1954 novel The Bad Seed, which was adapted into a film by Patty McCormack in 1956 and by Carrie Wells in 1985.
