Rocky: I'm giving you two seconds to give me the dough, see?
Bugs Bunny: Okay, okay! But first, I need you to close your eyes.
Rocky: Yeah, why?
Bugs Bunny: Because I don't want you to see where it's hid.
Rocky: Oh, all right. I'll count to then but I want you to give me the dough, see?
Bugs Bunny: Don't worry, brother. I will.
[as Rocky counts, Bugs goes to the kitchen and prepares a bowl of bread dough]
Rocky: One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. Now give it to me!

I watched the remake of this first...
18 August 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

... My favourite Bugs Bunny episode ever is "Bugs and Thugs" and having watched this before this, some of the jokes in "Racketeer Rabbit" were not too much of a surprise for me, so it was not as humorous as it could have been.

I did like this episode quite a deal because of the animation, some of the jokes (which I was not expecting) and the character of Bugs Bunny in this episode.

The reasons this was not quite up to my standards is because some of the jokes are quite "scary" (like the one where one of the robbers is constantly shooting a gun) and that I was expecting quite a few of the jokes (as I have said before as I am very boring and repetitive).

Anyhow, in this Bugs Bunny cartoon, it starts with the famous grey rabbit spending the night inside a big house. He is disturbed by robbers coming into the house, which is their home and he decides to make sure that they do him no harm...

I recommend this episode to people who like Bugs Bunny, to people who have not yet watched "Bugs and Thugs" and to people who like WB in general. Enjoy "Racketeer Rabbit"! :-)
