Porky tries to relax on a hunting and fishing trip, but Daffy, smugly pointing out the "No Duck Hunting" signs, subjects him to constant irritation. Then the "Duck Hunting Season Open" signs start going up.
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 »

In one of the many WWII-themed Looney Tunes cartoons, Bugs Bunny misses that left turn at Albuquerque for the first time and ends up in the Black Forest, where he meets Nazi official Hermann Goering. One scene in particular in "Herr Meets Hare" reminded me of Charlie Chaplin's "The Great Dictator", where Bugs starts ripping Goering's clothes off. But probably the most fascinating scene is when Bugs rides in dressed as Brunhilde, as he later would in his all-time masterpiece "What's Opera, Doc?". As for the end...well, I assumed that Bugs was going to pull something, but I didn't predict that one! I just always love how they poke fun at the Nazis, in this case making Hitler say "Heil me!". Bugs Bunny is just the greatest.
