IF IT WEREN'T for one particular extended gag, this could very well have been indistinguishable from so many of the Bugs Bunny pictures of its day. That's not to say that it wasn't an enjoyable and worthwhile 8 minutes well spent, for it would have been Any BB Cartoon of this period is pigeon holed in this manner.

UP TO THE point of which we speak, it was typically a "aren't we smarter than those hicks, hayseeds and ridge-runners. It's the same premise that spawned and sustained THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES for so many seasons, a one joke comedy extended to the nth degree.

THIS ONE GAG that we're raving about is when Bugs becomes the Square Dance Caller. It lasts for a good 2 1/2 minutes or so and is really a Tour de Force for Voice actor, Mel Blanc.

THIS ROUTINE ALONE should put Mel into Animators Heaven as swell as their Hall of Fame (if there is one!).
