Trivia

Forbidden to be broadcast by Warner Brothers (and later AOL Time-Warner) for many years because of the depictions of Hitler and Goering. It was finally broadcast in its entirety in July, 2001, on a special episode of the Cartoon Network's program "Toonheads" focusing on World War 2 cartoons. It is now in very limited circulation, as the episode is rebroadcast as part of the normal run of "Toonheads." "Herr Meets Hare" is not being broadcast at any other time on Cartoon Network. However, in 2007, "Herr Meets Hare" is being shown once again as part of Turner Classic Movies' "Cartoon Alley" classic animated shorts program. See more »

Not one you're likely to ever see....
6 November 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This cartoon features Bugs Bunny tunneling and accidentally ending up in Germany during WWII. And, of all the people to meet, he sees a lederhosen-clad Herman Goering frolicking about and soon the Nazi is determined to kill the American schwein. Later, Hitler joins in on the fun as well! "Herr Meets Hare" is a pretty good Bugs Bunny cartoon. However, you are very unlikely to see it unless you look for it. That's because the cartoon is very dated, as WWII propaganda films are practically ancient history. Plus, we are in a VERY politically correct time, and the notion of a cartoon featuring Hitler as well as Bugs dressing up like Hitler is something incompatible with current mindsets. Now I am NOT pro-Hitler or anything like that--just wondering why anyone is against showing Bugs kicking Hitler and Goering's butts! Besides, this IS a part of our history--why not embrace this sort of propaganda film, as it's all in good fun.

If you do want to see the film, you can currently download it for free at archive.org. Just don't hold your breath waiting to see it on television!
