Storyline

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 Mike Konczewski

Classic Sam and Bugs madness
17 March 2003 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I love watching Bugs Bunny getting on Yosemite Sam's case, and he does it here with his usual inventiveness. Sam is running for a Mayoral position and promises to rid the locality of rabbits. Cue Bugs marching around as a one-man band, banging a huge bass drum emblazoned "VOTE BUGS BUNNY". As well as the usual hilarious gags involving explosives, cannons and sucker tricks, we get Bugs's stunning Theodore Roosevelt act. Strangely, he looks more like John Denver! More proof of the genius of the Warner Bros crew, and Mel Blanc's amazing voice-over talents.
