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.
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 ?

Tex Avery at his best, but this one you'll need to look for to find
This is one of Avery's last with Warner Brothers and he was in fine form, truly magnificent here. But because the hunter is black (to be fair, there are stereotypes as well), the only way you'll find this is on a public domain tape. Despite the fact that Bugs does many of the same tricks on Elmer as he pulls here, this one is frowned on. Public domain tapes vary widely in quality, so buyer beware. there are one or two good quality tapes that I know of, so be prepared to look for this one. It's worth the trouble. Most highly recommended.
