Cute cartoon starring an early hybrid of Bugs
8 September 2003 | by (Morro Bay, Hammett Valley, Twin Rocks) – See all my reviews

The little white nameless rabbit with the bulbous black nose is considered by many as the very first version of what would later become Bugs Bunny. An early Porky goes rabbit hunting with his dog and is outwitted again and again by this "granddaddy" of Bugsy!!!

In June 2001, Cartoon Network ran an almost entire filmography of Mr. Bunny, beginning with Porky's Hare Hunt. The second cartoon in this "filmography" featured this same pinkish-white bunny with a big black nose in a haunted house with 2 dogs.

As the weekend marathon, known as "June Bugs" progressed from this 1938 cartoon to the very latest of Bugs' works, we saw the little pinkish white rabbit who was kind of daffy and hyper metamorphose into the wise cracking, brazen hare of Tex Avery and Robert Clampett fame, and then into an older, kinder, more mature Bugs that Chuck Jones, Friz Freleng, and Robert McKimson preferred. As a lifelong fan of Bugs and the Looney Tunes, I could not ignore the need for this little cartoon to be mentioned.
