Did You Know?


There are at least three allusions to movie stars. A sign in the shop window mentions Rabbit Taylor, a reference to Robert Taylor. Bugs Bunny does a brief imitation of Katharine Hepburn. Later, he quotes Groucho Marx. ("Of course, you know this means war!") A comic strip character, who is popular in the movies, also gets a reference: Elmer Fudd opens his newspaper, wondering aloud how Dick Tracy made out. See more »

Of course you realize, this means more cartoons!
8 July 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Probably the two main significances of "Elmer's Pet Rabbit" are that the wacky leporid featured in "A Wild Hare" now has a name, and that he utters his famous "Of course you realize this means war!" for the first time. Mostly, the Termite Terrace crowd was still trying to figure out what exactly to do with this long-eared rascal. It's certainly a must-see for hard-core fans of this genre, but others will probably have little reason to take interest.

But make no mistake, it's quite hilarious what Bugs Bunny does to the eternally gullible Elmer Fudd. Clear shades of things to come abound throughout the cartoon. I recommend it.
