The cartoon opens with a slow-witted black hunter saying "I'm gonna get me a rhaaa-bittt!" He sees rabbit tracks that lead him straight to Bugs Bunny's hole. Bugs heckles the hunter by telling him which way the rabbit went, luring him into a bear cave (phewww!), followed by bullets following Bugs from hole to hole. Will he ever catch that rhaaa-bittt ?

Despite popular belief, this cartoon was never fully remade substituting Elmer Fudd in place of the black hunter. One of the central scenes in the film was reanimated with Elmer in the opening of the cartoon The Big Snooze (1946), but that's it. See more »
When cartoons and movies were made in the 1930's, 40's and 50's the racial attitudes in America were different. Jim Crow laws discriminated against people of color in the south, the Army and pro sports were segregated until after World War II. Many of the ideas, laws and attitudes were wrong.
This cartoon has racial stereotypes and I cannot and will not speak for the cartoonists who produced it as to what their feelings and reasons were for making cartoons like this.
To ignore cartoons like All This and Rabbit Stew is to ignore our past, both good and bad. In order to understand the history of our great land, we must never hide from our past, but rather confront our past in an honest way.
