Storyline

When Bugs finds out that the bounty for rabbits is only two cents, he asks the bounty commissioner why. He's told that the bounty is so low because rabbits are harmless animals. Bugs decides to change that by being a national menace. Written by Ondre Lombard <olombard@lombard.cyberverse.com>

A great cartoon classic for Bugs!
7 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Maybe the best cartoon Bugs has ever had- he goes too far, and ends up in a heap of trouble, all because the bounty for a rabbit had been set at 2 cents...

Bugs' bounty becomes 1,000,000 dollars..

a classic- one of if not the best ever!

a classic that until a recent DVD release had not seen the light of day release wise unless you counted laser discs.. thanks Warner bros. for finally letting many see this classic cartoon! I'd rank it very highly, and would recommend this short to anyone who considers themselves to be fans of bugs and looney tunes.. a classic, and well worth the effort to see. Released April of 1949
