Bugs Is Right: Elmer Is A Jerk
19 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Elmer reads that one can hypnotize "dumb animals" so when he's out hunting one day (and reading the book at the same time), he comes across a bear. Lo and behold - it works! He puts the bear to sleep and has him float around like a canary. He then realizes this is his chance to finally capture the elusive Bugs Bunny.

However, Bugs, as well know, is anything but a "dumb animal," and turns the tables on dumb Mr. Fudd. By the way, does Elmer's laugh annoy anyone else out here? It annoys me. This is one guy I don't mind getting the short end of the stick when it comes to Bugs Bunny's mayhem. He's right on when he calls Elmer "a jerk" in this story.

The last third of this picture is excellent, however, when Elmer turns into a rabbit and asks Bugs, "What's up, doc?" He then drives Bugs crazy.

That's one thing about these cleverly-written cartoons; the smarter Bugs doesn't always prevail, as we see in here.
