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>

Trivia

The Southern Congressman that says "This hare must die!" and Bugs Bunny's comeback "It's a joke, son, ya missed it!" is a reference to a catchphrase of "Senator Claghorn", a movie character played by Kenny Delmar. Senator Claghorn inspired Foghorn Leghorn, and to some degree, Yosemite Sam. See more »

someone should separate Florida from the rest of the country
24 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

When I saw the title and first minute of "Rebel Rabbit", I sort of assumed that it would be a Robin Hood-style story. Boy was I wrong! It portrays Bugs Bunny getting insulted when he finds that the government has placed exorbitant bounties on foxes and bears, but only 2 cents on rabbits (after all, rabbits are such cute little creatures). So, the carrot-chomping rascal proceeds to make a complete mess of the United States. The final scene reminded me of the Peter Sellers-Ringo Starr movie "The Magic Christian", how they ridiculously brought in the most elaborate weaponry to deal with so simple an animal (then again, Bugs isn't so simple to catch).

I especially agreed with one scene: Bugs cuts Florida off from the rest of the country. Considering that the Sunshine State is home to the rich Cubans who fled when Fidel Castro's army took over in Cuba, we should break that state off from the rest of the country and send it down to Cuba so that the current government there can prosecute Fulgencio Batista's henchmen.

But I digress. The point is, this is a really funny cartoon. That southern senator was obviously Mel Blanc doing Foghorn Leghorn's voice. Really neat.
