Herr Meets Hare depicts Bugs Bunny hilariously poking holes at German arrogance of Hitler and Goering
Just rewatched this Bugs Bunny cartoon on the Hollywood Canteen DVD after first seeing this on a local children's show called "Buckskin Bill's Storyland" back in the late '70s. Back then, I didn't know about Hermann Goering or Stalin but I did know about Adolf Hitler and about how evil Germany was under him so it was very hilarious whenever Bugs disguises himself as Der Fuehrer and deflates Goering's ego by taking medals off of him causing him to lose his pants! A couple of notable firsts in a Bugs Bunny cartoon happened here: He says his first "I knew I took the wrong turn at Albuquerque" when he finds himself at the Black Forest and does his initial Brunhilda disguise to the music of Wagner 12 years before the iconic What's Opera, Doc? This short is a bit politically incorrect by today's standards and dates a little badly but you might get a little pleasure out of seeing the American rabbit punch holes at German stereotypes, American vernacular, and Russian accents. So on that note, Herr Meets Hare is worth a look.
