Trivia

As Bugs is pleading with Elmer not to quit, he turns to the audience and comments, "'Bette Davis' is gonna hate me for this." Davis, at the time, was going through a well-publicized legal battle with Warner Bros. trying to get out of her contract. See more »

Goofs

After the dream, Elmer arrives back at the log in a rush and the pieces of contract blow about in the air. A nearly off-screen Bugs on the left looks like he mouthes his catchphrase: "Ehhhh, What's up Doc?", but there is no sound. See more »

Quotes

Bugs Bunny: [trying to convince Elmer not to leave] No. No, doc. You can't do this to me. Think of what we've been to each other. Why, we've been like... like Rabbit and Costello, Damon and Runyan...
[tugs at Elmer's pants]
Bugs Bunny: Stan and Laurel...!
[rips them off accidentally and puts them back on]
Bugs Bunny: You can't do this, I tell ya. You don't want to break up the act, do ya?
[aside to audience]
Bugs Bunny: Bette Davis is going to hate me for this.
[back to Elmer]
Bugs Bunny: Think of your career.
[turns back to audience, shocked]

Incredibly Wild!
13 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Elmer Fudd is the doing the normal thing for him: hunting for Bugs Bunny in the woods. Bugs cleverly uses a log and a cliff to repeat the same joke three times, but it's always funny. Finally, Elmer has had it. He tired of always losing "in these cartoons." He takes his Warner Brothers contract and rips it up!

"From now on, its nothing but fishing for me, and no more wabbits," announces Elmer to a stunned Bugs, who pleads with him to change his mind. "Doc, you can't do this to me. Look at all we've been through. We're like Rabbit & Costello," he says. (That's one of the things I love about these cartoons - great, inventive dialog.)

While Elmer's peacefully dreaming, Bugs invades his dream! This is one of the wildest, funniest Bug Bunny cartoons I have ever seen - just brilliant material.
