Elmer Fudd expects to find "west and wewaxation" during his visit to Jellostone National Park, but he sets up camp in Bugs' backyard, and the rabbit (and a neighboring bear) definitely don't have leisure in mind.
Little Henery the Chicken Hawk wants to prove he's big enough to hunt chickens, but he doesn't know what a chicken is. He labels Foghorn Leghorn a loud-mouthed shnook and dismisses him, ... See full summary »
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.

This is a very important film historically speaking. It's the first appearance for Elmer Fudd as well as Bugs Bunny. As for Elmer, he looks a bit different and instead of shooting rabbits, this one's a pacifist and just wants to photograph rabbits. And, as for Bugs, he's still an unnamed character and looks a bit difference from Bugs. Plus, he's got a darned annoying laugh--one that sounds a lot like Woody Woodpecker. Fortunately, this was soon dropped!
The cartoon is very ordinary at best. I think that having Elmer be a nice guy instead of a guy toting a gun was a big mistake--and one they soon corrected. This is because it makes the rabbit a real jerk--and not particularly likable. Worth seeing for historical reasons but otherwise only fair.
