The very first cartoon in Warner Bros. popular Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner series of cartoons. This one has the Coyote chasing the Roadrunner using a rather ingenious invention combining a fridge, a meat grinder, ice cubes, and skis.

Elmer Fudd, in suit, ascot, and bowler, reads "How to Photograph Wild Life," gets his camera kit - with tripod and flash, and heads into the countryside. He happens on tracks and soon comes upon a sleeping rabbit. He sets up his camera and that's when his troubles begin. The rabbit wakes up before Elmer can snap the picture, and while the rabbit is seemingly helpful, his various antics drive Elmer mad. Will there be a photo before the finish? Written by

"Then all you do is click the shutter, and presto! You have a fine picture of wildlife, suitable for framing." Golly, that sounds simple enough.

A fat Elmer Fudd plans to take picture of wildlife, and then he runs into a very crude early version of Bugs Bunny who torments him without end in this vaguely amusing short. Obviously the characters of both Bugs and Elmer aren't nearly fully realized in this earlier short, but you can tell that it's on it's way, even if it had a tad to go to get there. It's worth watching for it's historic value, but it's not particularly great either. And if eternally grateful that they did away with Bugs Bunny's jackass type laugh in later shorts. This cartoon is on Disk 3 of the "Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 1"
