Storyline

The big wrestling match: The Crusher vs. Ravishing Ronald. Ronald's mascot is Bugs Bunny ("it's a living"). But Ronald is massively outmatched by The Crusher, and Bugs, seeing his meal ticket threatened, quickly substitutes as "The Masked Terror." But Bugs is no match for him either, at least on a pure physical level. So it's time for Bugs to apply "strategy." He rips his mask, making Crusher think it was his pants fortunately, Stychen Tyme, the tailor, is handy - complete with needle to stick in a sensitive spot. Enraged, Crusher charges, right through the giant safe, into the ropes; Bugs closes the door, Crusher crashes into the safe and is dazed. Bugs suggests he rest up on this nice soft mat...

Trivia

"Ravishing Ronald" is modeled after wrestler Gorgeous George Wagner, who used many of the gimmicks Ronald does in this cartoon: a valet, perfume, dyed blonde hair and bobby pins. Unlike Ronald, however, Gorgeous George was actually a competent wrestler, and theatrical "cheating" was his trademark, not his opponents'. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the match when "The Crusher' offers Bugs to shake hands, he (and Bugs) shake with the left hand when it should be the right (not left) hand. See more »

Quotes

[after the Crusher crashes against a steel door]
Bugs Bunny: Why, Crusher! It's good to see you.
The Crusher: Yeah, well, I was just passing by... Dyuh... just passing by...
Bugs Bunny: Well, come in, come in, come in, come in. Don't stand out there in the cold.
The Crusher: Thought I'd just drop in to say hello... D'oy... Just passing by, you understand...
Bugs Bunny: [puts a coat on Crusher] Sorry you think you gotta go, Crusher. Been nice seeing you.
The Crusher: D'oy...
Bugs Bunny: Aw, you look tired, Crusher. Why don't you rest up on this nice, soft floor for a few minutes ...

Bunny Hugged (1951)

*** (out of 4)

Spoof of wrestling has Bugs Bunny jumping into the ring after his owner is destroyed by The Crusher. Once inside the ring the rabbit is totally out of his league so he must use his brains to try and bring down the best. There's quite a bit that happens inside the seven-minutes of this short. There's pretty much action from the start to finish and most of it is very good. The best sequence is early on in the picture and doesn't even feature the hero Bugs. It's a scene where The Crusher destroys the other wrestler, a "pretty boy" type and the way he's destroyed is just hilarious. The violent action is another plus as is all of the animation, which looks extremely well.
