Classic Bugs Bunny short, directed by Friz Freleng, with Yosemite Sam having his way in a western town until Bugs steps up to challenge him. Lots of funny gags and lines, many of which I remembered exactly even though I haven't seen this short since I was a kid. This is one of those Bugs cartoons I saw a lot growing up. Beautiful colors and wonderful animation. Lively, fun music from Carl Stalling. Great voice work from the legendary Mel Blanc. It's just a really funny cartoon and a good introduction to Bugs and Sam for any little ones who might not have seen his cartoons yet. Kids are still allowed to watch Yosemite Sam, right?
