Elmer Fudd walks out of a typical Bugs cartoon, so Bugs gets back at him by disturbing Elmer's sleep using "nightmare paint."
Did You Know?
The opening sequence, in which Bugs traps Elmer inside a log and rolls it toward a cliff each time Elmer tries to exit, reuses the animation from the 1941 Tex Avery
cartoon All This and Rabbit Stew
(1941). Instead of Elmer, though, the previous film features a black hunter chasing Bugs. Elmer was simply drawn in over the animation of the black hunter, right down to the same body poses and facial expressions. This has confused a number of people into thinking the former film was completely re-done with Elmer, whereas it's only the one scene. See more
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
