27 March 2016 6:46 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Warner Bros. 500th animated short released in 1947 is "Easter Yeggs", a word play on 'Easter eggs' and on 'yegg', a slang term for a burglar or safecracker. The technicolor cartoon, directed by Robert McKimson, produced by Eddie Selzer, from a story by Warren Foster, stars Mel Blanc with music by Carl Stalling, featuring Warners characters 'Bugs Bunny' and 'Elmer Fudd':

In the cartoon, 'Bugs Bunny' finds the 'Easter Rabbit' sitting on a rock, crying. The Bunny tells Bugs that his feet are sore, so he cannot deliver the Easter eggs. Bugs takes up the job, not knowing that, every year, the Easter Bunny gets some 'dumb bunny' to do his work for him.
