The first time I saw this cartoon was on the same Internet site where I found "Tokio Jokio", and let me tell ya: Aside from Bugs Bunny disguising himself as Hitler and Stalin, this cartoon is tame enough even for cable (and it was. A CN special on World War Two cartoons managed to show this uncut). Besides, today's kids wouldn't get the jokes, so why are the PC Police making older cartoon viewers suffer by banning this and other WW-II cartoons from all media?
BTW: The scene where Bugs Bunny dresses as the Brunhilde and dances with Hermann Goerring was later re-used in the magnificently done, Chuck Jones-directed, "What's Opera, Doc", only Goerring was replaced with Elmer Fudd dressed in Viking garb, there was a duet called "Return My Love" (that ALWAYS made me cry everytime I watch it. Why, don't ask?) that was sung by Elmer and Bugs, the scene was longer than it was in "Herr Meets Hare", and the setting was excellently done by the late, great Maurice Noble (1910-2001).
