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 »
Is it a good idea to use live animals for department store window displays?
No, and here's why....
In "Hare Conditioned" the sale that Bugs is helping promote is over and the store manager (Nelson) is transferring him to a new department: taxidermy. Naturally, Bugs objects and the fun begins.
using nearly every department in the store (children's wear, sports, shoes, costumes, women's nightgowns - don't ask.), Bugs comes out on top at every turn, even referring to the manager as "The Great GilderSNEEZE". Even when trapped in the confines of an elevator, Bugs makes the best of the situation.
Director Jones is on top of his pictorial game as always, as are Blanc (as Bugs, natch) and Nelson (the manager - who DOES sound like radio mainstay Gildersleeves - go ask your grand-parents).
And a sage word of advice: when confronted by a fuzzy-looking woman wanting to try on bathroom slippers, always check her ears.
Ten stars for "Hare Conditioner", the best argument yet for animal labor laws.
