Trivia

The U.S. Marine Corps was so flattered that Bugs Bunny decides to become a Marine in this film that it insisted he be officially inducted into the Corps as a private, which was done, complete with dogtags. Bugs was regularly promoted until he was officially "discharged" at the end of World War II as a Master Sergeant. See more »

Goofs

When setting out on his mission, Bugs puts five super-carrots into his case, yet by the end of the cartoon the case seems to hold several dozen carrots. See more »

"Time out whilst I think up some more deviltry."
8 September 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Classic Looney Tunes take on Superman (probably one of the very first such parodies). In this story, Bugs Bunny eats a carrot created by a mad scientist and gains super powers. He decides to use these powers to take on famous Texas rabbit hunter Cottontail Smith. Many funny lines and gags follow, ending with Bugs deciding to become a REAL Superman in a nicely patriotic ending. The animation is wonderful with lovely colors and backgrounds. I especially liked the scientist's laboratory. The music is lively and fun. Superb voicework from Mel Blanc and Kent Rogers. It's a great cartoon with a still-evolving Bugs Bunny that should please any Looney Tunes fan. Plus it should be of interest to Superman fans who might not typically watch these old cartoons.
