Trivia

Red Hot Ryder is a spoof of the Western hero Red Ryder, and his image was based on that of the man who had played Red Ryder in the serial, Don 'Red' Barry. See more »

Goofs

It was quite correct to point out that the makers of this film didn't know that victory gardens hadn't been around for 60 years or more. Also, rabbits don't have vocal chords or opposable thumbs, and aren't very intelligent. Yet this cartoon clearly shows one talking, and using his hands to outsmart a man. See more »

Quotes

Bugs Bunny: Stick'em up, or I'll blow your brains out!

Another Great Bob Clampett Cartoon!
2 August 2002 | by (Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

This cartoon -- directed by the great Bob Clampett -- is one of the best Bugs Bunny cartoons ever (IMO). In the "Western" storyline, our favorite hare is the Masked Marauder, stealing carrots from Victory Gardens (they had those in the Wild Wild West?!??) and being pursued by the not-so-bright Red Hot Rider (his horse is smarter than he is!). Bugs, as he does with Elmer, then proceeds to have fun tripping up this adversary. This classic cartoon dates from Clampett's -- and Warner's -- golden age of the 1940's, a time in which the wildly hilarious "Warner Style" reached it's peak. This one is a must for any Bugs Bunny fan.
