Storyline

Mountie Elmer is on the trail of Bugs who's wanted dead or alive, "preferably dead". Elmer gets handcuffed to a bomb. Bugs looks through all Elmer's keys but can't seem to find the right one... Bugs foils Elmer with tricks like the Elmer-shaped snowman. Finally Bugs lets himself be arrested. Elmer takes Bugs back to the log stockade and puts Bugs up before a Mountie firing squad. But Bugs starts singing "Dixie". The stockade becomes a field of cotton, and all the Mounties, including Elmer, turn into singing Negro minstrels! Written by David Steele

Bugs is at it again
11 June 2004 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Elmer Fudd is a mountie on Bugs Bunny hunt (what else, really), as Bugs is wanted for several 'crimes' in the area. He finally finds and cuffs him but somehow Bugs switches himself with a bomb so poor Elmer is blown up... yet again.

Several chases follow, and this is a very funny part. They both crash in and out snow-walls, leaving funny figures. See it for yourself, very amusing.

The ending is a bit weird, as Bugs feels sorry for Elmer and turns himself in. While standing for a death-squad he is asked if he has one last wish. He has, and it somehow includes dressing up and singing a song, but I didn't really get that.

Some nice chases and a fun cartoon: 7/10.
