[Bugs slowly takes off costume as jukebox is playing Skip to my Lou, my Darling and starts fiddling a violin, while singing, leading Curt and Pumpkinhead Martin outside with musical voice]
Bugs Bunny: Promenade across the floor, sashay right on out the door, out the door and into the glade, and everybody promenade.

Bow to your partner, bow to the gentleman across the hall...

Ah, one for the time capsules.

HILLBILLY HARE is likely the most violent cartoon ever created. But, the violence is not the brainless "Tom and Jerry" variety, despite the fact that the "do-gooders" lump this in with that garbage.

The violence that permeates H-H is motivated, timed and distinctly mired in hilarity. I simply cannot square-dance (not that I really ever WANTED TO) because of the fear I'll latch into the "grab a fencepost, hold it tight; whallop your partner with all your might" cadence.

Without a doubt, the removal of this cartoon from television (the thought police even keep it of of CARTOON NETWORK) badly hurt the nation's sense of absurd humor. Thank God for the video!
