In celebration of Bugs Bunny's fiftieth birthday, this television series, broadcast on weekdays, consisted of classic cartoons featuring Bugs Bunny and other characters conceived by the ... See full summary »
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 ?

One of the "Censored 11" banned from T.V. syndication by United Artists in 1968 (then the owners of the Looney Tunes film library) for alleged racism. Ted Turner continued the ban when he was hired and stated that these films will not be re-issued and will not be put on Home Video. These cartoons will probably never air on television again, and only non-Warner Bros. licensed public domain video tapes will probably ever have these cartoons on them. See more »
Your typical Bugs Bunny chase cartoon, although he doesn't dress up in this one and Elmer Fudd's place been taken by a black hunter, which probably is the reason why it was banned in the first place.
The hunter tries to catch Bunny in which he obviously doesn't succeed, as he has an encounter with a huge bear and falls from a mountain a number of times. When in the end he finally does catch him, Bugs persuades him into a game of dice which the black hunter loses, and Bugs is leaving him without his gun and clothes.
Maybe a bit racist (though the hunter basicaly does the same things as Elmer Fudd), this cartoon isn't the best Bugs Bunny has offered the world. 5/10.
