Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 is weak but Bugs carries the cartoon really well
15 November 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When the West was won, pioneers settle down to make their homes. However one such town is ravaged by the Masked Marauder, a thief who robs the gardens of their carrots. One man is called in to stop the thief – the Red Hot Ryder. However will he be enough to stop Bugs?

The weakness in this cartoon is the normal one in average Bugs cartoons – lack of a really good foil, in fact Bugs himself describes Red Hot Ryder as `a fugitive from the funny papers'. However despite the slightly dopey sidekick, Bugs doing his usual stuff is more than enough to make the cartoon funny. He totally confuses Red and it is very funny to watch.

Red is OK but he isn't up to the standard of the other cowboy character (who I expected to be in this) and all he does is be a bit silly and dopey. It speaks volumes that I actually laughed more at his horse than I did at his antics. Bugs is on good form though and he keeps everything moving really well.

Overall this is further proof that Bugs is best with a strong sidekick but that he can make a cartoon work even without one. Very funny short with Bugs' usual wit and attitude.
