Bunker Hill Bunny is another Bugs Bunny-Yosemite Sam cartoon
8 January 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam are at it again! This time, it's the Revolutionary War at the Battle of Bagel Heights. The rabbit and the ornery short guy are the only people at their respective forts and neither wants to give up their base of operations. As they keep charging into each other's forts, flags saying "We" with a carrot (Bugs', of course) and "They" (Sam's) change places inside each. They also charge cannon balls at each other with the rabbit always catching his inside the cannon and Sam doing the same until Bugs plugs a cork on Sam's cannon. Wanna guess what happens when Sam pulls the cork from his? I'll stop here and say this was another funny cartoon short from Friz Freling. And remember, "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em."
