Bugs is the Masked Marauder, a carrot thief whom Brooklyn's Red Hot Ryder must try to bring to justice.
Did You Know?
Red Hot Ryder is a mix of Red Skelton's radio characters 'Sheriff Deadeye' and 'Clem Kiddlehopper' with catchphrases "Whoa horse! Come on horse whoa!" and "Here I am". See more
The entire cartoon, which is set in the Old West, is predicated on the Masked Marauder stealing carrots from a victory garden. Victory over what? The victory garden is a reference to World War II (which was going on during this cartoon's production), but the cartoon's setting is well before that.
Plus, the desert environment wouldn't support victory gardens. See more

Red Hot Ryder
Let me at that Masked Marauder. I'm a gonna murder him. I'm a gonna *murder* him!
Murder, he says. So he wants to play cops and robbers, eh? All right, he'll be the cop, and I'll be the bad widdle wobber.
