Trivia

In the sequence where Bugs ties Elmer to the railroad tracks and pretends to run him over with a train, Elmer's cries of "Oh, agony, agony, agony!" are provided by Mel Blanc instead of Arthur Q. Bryan. 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 »

A lotta fun--and it steps out of the fourth wall.
23 March 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a very funny and very unusual Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd cartoon. It starts off typically--with Bugs repeatedly tormenting Elmer. Finally, however, Elmer announces he's had enough and he takes out his Warner Brothers contract, tears it up and announces he's done with cartoons! Bugs makes a comment to the audience and then decides that he MUST bring Elmer back into the Warner fold--otherwise he, too, might be out of work. When Bugs finds Elmer, he's sound asleep, so Bugs takes a sleeping pill and enters Elmer's dream in order to torment him (much like a recent Spongebob cartoon). It's all very funny--and filled with a lot of nudity, as Elmer, inexplicably, runs about in fig leaf underwear. Most importantly, however, it is very funny, fast-paced and I love how the cartoon lets you know that the characters know they are cartoons. Really weird and fun.
