Rabbit Fire is one of my favorites from the "Hunting Trilogy" series
7 January 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Of the three shorts directed by Chuck Jones and written by Michael Maltese that starred Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Elmer Fudd in the "Hunting Trilogy" series, this, Rabbit Fire was the first. When I originally saw this as a nearly 10-year-old kid in the late '70s, I laughed out loud at the way Bugs kept tricking Daffy into saying, "Duck season, fire!" with the result of Elmer shooting the duck's face and Daffy's beak either falling off, or spinning, or his head hanging upside down. Other funny stuff involves the wabbit and duck impersonating each other in costume, their reading recipes of what each other would taste like followed by "mmmm-mmm" sounds, Bugs fooling Elmer with his female disguise (again!), an "elephant gun" gag, and the final twist that I won't reveal here. After all these years, this is one of my favorites among many classic Warner Bros. cartoons.
