Storyline

The lazy Easter Bunny tricks our redoubtable Bugs into delivering his eggs for him. Bugs Bunny is happy to do it until he encounters a nasty little toddler who sucks a pistol for a pacifier. After nearly getting killed by the boy's hillbilly family, Bugs tries to give the eggs back to the Easter Bunny, who whines some more and gets Bugs to continue with the job. Elmer Fudd is eagerly awaiting the Easter Bunny: he wants "Easter Wabbit stew." Bugs will thwart Elmer by cuddling him in the Tunnel of Love, performing a magic act on his watch, and sending the sadistic brat to beat him on the head. Then Bugs will realize it's time to take revenge on the Easter Bunny. Written by J. Spurlin

Elmer Fudd contradicts his character and offends comic logic in wanting to kill the Easter Bunny for food; many funny gags make up for it

The lazy Easter Bunny tricks our redoubtable Bugs into delivering his eggs for him. Bugs Bunny is happy to do it until he encounters a nasty little toddler who sucks a pistol for a pacifier. After nearly getting killed by the boy's hillbilly family, Bugs tries to give the eggs back to the Easter Bunny, who whines some more and gets Bugs to continue with the job. Elmer Fudd is eagerly awaiting the Easter Bunny: he wants "Easter Wabbit stew." Bugs will thwart Elmer by cuddling him in the Tunnel of Love, performing a magic act on his watch, and sending the sadistic brat to beat him on the head. Then Bugs will realize it's time to take revenge on the Easter Bunny.

Elmer Fudd wants to kill the Easter Bunny just to get some food? This contradicts his character and offends comic logic. One, Elmer is too childlike to plot such an act without being manipulated into it. Think of the Elmer Fudd from "Rabbit Seasoning." Two, we already have the main premise: the Easter Bunny tricks another rabbit into doing his work. We don't need a second idea competing with the first—especially when the second idea is so weird.

Still, the gags in this short are so funny it's hard to complain too much. Mel Blanc borrows his characterization of Mr. Beasley the mailman (from the Burns and Allen radio program) to use for the Easter Bunny. He even uses the mailman's catchphrase, "And remember: keep smiling!" Unlike the mailman, the Easter Bunny is a jerk, which makes the ending highly satisfying.

This cartoon is available on the "Looney Tunes Golden Collection, Volume Three," Disc 1.
