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

Ouch...the last 30 seconds!
20 October 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Fresh Hare" is one of several Warner Brothers cartoons that has been pulled from the market because of its racial insensitivities. While offensive, the company sure made worse (such as "Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs"--which would probably give the politically correct out there heart attacks if they see it). Now I am not excusing the ending--it was pretty offensive and I could see why the powers that be decided to yank this from the market.

The cartoon finds Elmer Fudd as a Mountie out to get his man....I mean, rabbit. It seems that the screwy rabbit has crossed the line too many times and he's wanted by the authorities. What follows is generally quite funny and is well animated. However, completely out of left field comes a final weird and not very funny joke--one that leads to Bugs, Elmer and the rest of the Mounties putting on an impromptu minstrel show. Overall, much of the cartoon is cute and enjoyable and the ending is just plain odd and rather offensive.
