Elmer Fudd expects to find "west and wewaxation" during his visit to Jellostone National Park, but he sets up camp in Bugs' backyard, and the rabbit (and a neighboring bear) definitely don't have leisure in mind.
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
Exploding musical instrument scheme is in three Warner Brothers cartoons. The musical score is "Those Endearing Young Charms". In order, they are, first is 1951's Ballot Box Bunny (1951), as Yosemite Sam tried to get rid of Bugs Bunny, with an explosive piano. Second is 1957's Show Biz Bugs (1957), as Daffy Duck tried to get rid of Bugs Bunny, with an exploding xylophone. Then in 1965, the rivals are Wile E. Coyote and "Anonymous" Roadrunner, (not named), in Rushing Roulette (1965). Wile E. Coyote set up an exploding piano, and the roadrunner played one 'sour note'. Additional fact: The very same musical note, approximately the seventh note to the tenth note is the note, that is not played correctly, every time and when correctly played, by the schemer, gets the explosion, happening to it.

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 »
As I stand on this platform, I stand for union - Union suits and Union stations! For the little people. There's enough fresh air and sunshine in this great country of ours for everybody, and I'll see to it that you'll get your share!

Even fifty years later this short holds up as a terrific commentary on life in America. Here's Yosimite Sam, running for mayor on a platform that promises to exterminate rabbits. "Two rabbits in every pot." Bugs hears this and needs to run against him to save his own skin.
