Daffy is an agent representing Sleepy Lagoon trying to sell him to talent scout Porky. Daffy spends a great deal of time and energy explaining and demonstrating what the kid can do, while the kid sits on a couch licking a giant sucker.
Relaxing with a carrot at an army air field, Bugs is reading "Victory Through Hare Power," and scoffs at the notion of "gremlins," little creatures who wreak havoc on planes with their "dia-bo-lickal sabo-tay-gee." His reading is interrupted by a clanging sound, and it turns out to be a little wing-headed being pounding on a bockbuster bomb with a mallet. Written by

In the opening scene, Bugs is reading a book titled "Victory Thru Hare Power". It's a spoof on the title of "Victory Through Air Power", by Maj. Alexander de Seversky, published by Garden City Books, NY, in 1942. See more »

Sorry, folks. We ran out of gas.
Yeah, you know how it is with these "A" cards.

This short has a lot of topical humor, which is the case with most of the work produced anyway, but this is topical to World War II and to many people alive today, that seems like eons ago. References to Wendell Wilkie and "A" cards and the like will sail by many in the audience, but sight gags and the overall wackiness will be enjoyable enough. Check out the title of the book Bugs is reading at the start-it's a great gag! Well worth watching. Recommended.
