Bugs and Elmer...how can you go wrong?
27 October 2000 | by (Canton NY) – See all my reviews

Bugs Bunny found his best antagonist in Elmer Fudd and "Wabbit Who Came to Supper" is one of my favorites. This idea was revisited with Yosemite Sam, and it still is quite funny. As with most Looney Tunes, they remain funny no matter how many times you watch them. Since this is not as good as the Barber of Seville one (the name escapes me, although I commented on it earlier), I gave this an 8.
