Trivia

The powerful pachyderm that pummels and pounded Elmer Fudd's head once, is based on and was voiced by sometime-secondary Stooge Shemp Howard's first replacement, Joe Besser. This remark was mentioned in "Toonheads" during a half hour program, that Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck & Elmer Fudd, (all three)are/were in only three cartoons, titled Rabbit Fire (1951), Rabbit Seasoning (1952) & Duck! Rabbit, Duck! (1953). See more »

Duck season,Rabbit season,Duck season,Rabbit season,Rabbit season,Duck season,Rabbit season,I say its Duck season and I say fire.....BANG!(best of the trilogy)
1 July 2010 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Rabbit Fire is one of my favorite Looney Toone sketches and it is without a doubt my favorite out of The Hunting Trilogy.

Elmer Fudd is going hunting and Bugs and Daffy know that either one of them are gonna get shot so Bugs says that its Duck Season and Daffy says that its Rabbit season but then Bugs does a trick causing Daffy to say that its Duck Season and get blasted.

They both try everything to stop themselves from getting blasted like pretending to be the other person,telling Elmer lovely meals to make out of duck/rabbit and duscuising as humans.
