poor fat Elmer
3 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Elmer Fudd stands to inherit 3 million bucks from his Uncle, if he can just withstand harming Bugs Bunny. He unfortunately reads this tidbit of information while he's hunting the rabbit, meaning Bugs overhears him and will take every advantage of this new wrinkle in the scenario that he can. Which lets him get away with a good deal much more, until a new telegram arrives... Such a great cartoon starring the fatter Elmer, he slimmed down considerably later in his career, and a still unrefined Bugs (looks wise, not attitude wise). Great gags make this one of the better ones of the early years. This animated short can be found on Disk 1 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 3 and includes an optional commentary by Jerry Beck and cell painter Martha Sigall.

My Grade: A+
