Due to pressure from Warner Brothers, this cartoon was one of eleven pulled from rotation by the Cartoon Network for its 2001 "June Bugs" marathon, which was to show the complete chronology of Bugs Bunny cartoons. This is in also the "Censored 11". Also All This and Rabbit Stew (1941) and Bushy Hare (1950) with Bugs Bunny, have been withheld from distribution since 1968. Reason given was the short may potentially offend African-Americans. "Nature Boy" was an Austrailian Aborigine. See more »

Not as rude as it may sound

Bugs Bunny is strolling through Golden Gate park and for some reason feels a lot like singing. A scary looking balloon salesman asks Bugs to hold his balloons while he ties his shoe. This unusual set-up leads the bunny to flying all the way to Australia via balloon. Normally, Bugs appears ready for anything, but in `Bushy Hare' we learn he has quite a few shortcomings: in rapid succession he claims to be scared of hights, afraid of the dark and can't stand to see a mother cry (no matter what species she is). Worst of all, he just will not stop singing those show tunes. Still, at least he did not take another left turn at Albuquerque.

After bumping into a stork, Bugs is delivered to an expecting kangaroo. Feeling pity, Bugs pretends to be a baby kangaroo and soon finds himself being hunted by `Nature Boy'. This politically incorrect Aboriginal acts like Elmer crossed with the Tasmanian Devil and therefore offers little challenge to Bugs. Although Bugs appears to speak fluent Abbo, the two of them still end up fighting inside the mother kangaroo's pouch. It all ends with a happy family reunion and a very strange mode of transportation for Bugs to return to the states. Thankfully `Bushy Hare' came to an end before the bunny started to sing again.
