Trivia

The department store manager is a parody of The Great Gildersleeve, a character played by Harold Peary in the radio program "Fibber McGee and Molly". Gildersleeve was so popular he was spun off into his own radio show, "The Great Gildersleeve", as well as a series of feature films. See more »

Quotes

Gildersleeve: He-he-he-he-he. Kind of outsmarted you. Eh, little chum?
Bugs Bunny: Hey, wait. Wait a minute. Say that again.
Gildersleeve: He-he-he-he-he. Kind of outsmarted you. Eh, little chum?
Bugs Bunny: Yeah, that's it. You know, you sound like that guy on the radio, the Great Gildersneeze.
Gildersleeve: I do? Aw. "He-he-he-he-he. Kind of outsmarted you. Eh, little chum?"
[Bugs takes the gun and tosses it away, but it goes off, alerting the manager]
Gildersleeve: Say, are you trying to pull a fast one?
Bugs Bunny: Well, confidentially, chubby... I just did.

"Kind of outsmarted you, eh, little chum?"
22 October 2003 | by (Bristol, CT) – See all my reviews

Bugs is employed as a department store window attraction, but gets demoted and about to be stuffed for a new taxidermy display. The Store Manager is about fifty times the size of Bugs and probably his most formidable foe other than Yosemite Sam. He never lets up in the entire seven minutes of the short. Still, even while in a corner Bugs remains on his game and stays one step ahead. The manager fails to notice Bugs' elevator operator disguise, and even adjusts his uniform. The confines of the department store provide a unique chase between these two, and unique circumstances result as well. It is also a satire of retail stores with the added fun of Bugs wit and intelligence plus a strong antagonist.

By far this is one of Bugs most underrated animated shorts he's ever been in; a dark comedy bolstered by the direction of Chuck Jones.
