Uncredited cast:
Bugs Bunny / The Gremlin (voice) (uncredited)


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 Paul Penna <>

Did You Know?


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 »


Bugs Bunny: [Bugs has just been hit on the head with a wrench] Which way did he go, George, which way did he go?
The Gremlin: Hmmm...
[points in both directions]
The Gremlin: That way.
Bugs Bunny: Well, gee, thanks a lot George, thanks a lot.
[upon taking his first step, he immediately falls to the floor. The Gremlin runs over to him and pulls his eyelids open]
The Gremlin: What's the matter, bunny rabbit? Speak to me. Why don't you say something?
Bugs Bunny: I'm only three-and-a-half years old. B-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b.
The Gremlin: I like him, he's silly!

This Certainly Was Not The Bugs Bunny We Know
17 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here's another World War II cartoon, this one beginning at a U.S. Army airfield. The first thing I appreciated was the tremendous artwork regarding those war planes. They looked fantastic. Part of that, of course, is due to the tremendous restoration job they have done on these Looney Tunes Golden Collection DVDs.

Bugs in nearby, reading "Victory Through Hare Power." Bugs is laughing at what he's reading. He clues us in with, "Get this folks: it says 'a constant menace to pilots is are the gremlins who wreck planes with their diabolical sabotage.' Ha ha, what a joke. Gremlins - what a fairy tale. ha ha."

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that in the next scene, he's going to see one of these little creatures. He does, but then surprises me by not saying the customary "What's up, doc?" but "What's all the hubbub, bub?"

Actually, this wasn't nearly as much fun as the normal Bugs Bunny cartoon because, as his fans know, Bugs is very, very smart guy. He always outsmarts the opposition. This Bugs Bunny is a dope and the little Gremlin makes a fool of him constantly. In this cartoon, Bugs literally turns momentarily into a "jackass," and that pretty much describes him in those one - certainly not the Bugs we know.

Overall: disappointing.
