What's supper, doc?
19 February 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

"The Wabbit Who Came to Supper" gives one the idea of milking a situation to the nth degree. When Elmer Fudd - looking like a walking heart attack (they were making him fat at this time so as to resemble his voice artist Arthur Q. Bryan) - receives a letter telling him that he'll inherit $3 million as long as he doesn't harm any animals, especially rabbits, Bugs Bunny (who overheard Elmer reading the telegram) promptly invades Elmer's house and does everything possible to annoy Elmer. How I would love to try that! It just goes to show why these cartoons were so great: they were never afraid to pull any wacky gag that they could think of. And this one has some great gags! So check it out. You're sure to love it.

And remember: don't go down there; it's dark!
