Trivia

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 »

A Bugs 'n' Elmer Oddity
9 June 1999 | by (Destin, Florida) – See all my reviews

This very unusual early teaming of Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny (long before he found his "voice") is of interest to hardcore fans, though it would be a while before they became the well-oiled machine...
