Bugs is the Masked Marauder, a carrot thief whom Brooklyn's Red Hot Ryder must try to bring to justice.
Did You Know?
This is also the first Bugs Bunny cartoon to feature the Warner Bros. shield transforming into his head during the intro. (Unlike the Porky head in the earlier "Brother Brat" and the Daffy head in the later "Plane Daffy", the Bugs head doesn't stay on screen for the Looney Tunes card in this cartoon.)
Starting with "Hare Trigger", intros would later revert to the version of "reclining Bugs" seen in "The Heckling Hare" before permanently adopting the Bugs head in 1948. See more
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
