The Wabbit Who Came to Supper is another Bugs-Elmer cartoon I recommend
23 July 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In this Friz Freeling directed cartoon short, Elmer stops trying to hunt for Bugs in the forest with his dogs after receiving a telegram telling that his Uncle Louie will give him three million dollars if Elmer stops harming animals-especially "wabbits". Well, when Bugs hears of this, you know he'll annoy the "fat boy" constantly! (Mr. Fudd was drawn on the heavyset side during this period)...If you love to see Bugs at his most obnoxious, this is the cartoon for you! Many gags are probably familiar to you if you've seen a ton of Warner Bros. cartoons. There's one scene when Bugs gets thrown out and he does a hysterical routine that has him breaking the fourth wall and saying, "This could get me the Academy Award!" On that note, I highly recommend The Wabbit Who Came to Supper.
