Yosemite Sam is running for mayor, and one of his campaign promises is to get rid of all the rabbits. When Bugs runs against him as the "pro-bunny" candidate, Yosemite uses a number of elaborate stunts to eliminate his opponent (which all backfire). In the end, they're defeated by a dark horse candidate (an actual dark horse!). Written by
The original cartoon finished with Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam playing a game of Russian Roulette after they find out they both lost the election. This has been edited in most broadcasts, but the cartoon appears complete in the and the earlier international available super 8-mm releases and now in the new DVD release. See more »
When Sam asks Bugs to play the piano, Bugs plays 2 distinctly different sour notes each time, but he is striking the exact same key. See more »

Another winning Looney Tunes episode this time finds Yosemite Sam running for Mayor when Bugs Bunny shows up and decides to run against him. With the two in a battle for the job you just know one of them are going to get blown up. The word explosion is the key here because there are many throughout the short and all of them get some very big laughs. We have an exploding cigar, piano, canon and all of them give some hysterical laughs. Sam's character is wonderful here and really steals the film, although there's no doubt he was one of Bug's greatest co-stars. What I also enjoyed was the look of Sam after being blown up countless times. Each time gave Sam a new look and I loved all of them.
