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 »

Quotes

Bugs: [as a lady hunter] Oh, how simply dreadful. You poor little man. Did I hurt you with my naughty gun?
Elmer Fudd: Aw, shucks. Well, I... Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!
[Daffy, as a hunting dog, bites Elmer in the leg]
Elmer Fudd: Yeow!
Bugs: Gypsy, you naughty bow-wow. Stop that.

The beginning to the greatest trilogy ever made
22 May 2002 | by (The Forest) – See all my reviews

10/10 It is hard to say what is the best trilogy ever made. Some would say Star Wars, others The Godfather, some Die Hard, and a few would say Evil Dead. Oh, and the Tim Burton Batman trilogy. You know what? None of them reach the height of the shorts Rabbit Fire, Rabbit Seasoning, and Duck! Rabbit! Duck!; aka The Hunting Trilogy. If more people watched these shorts, they would agree, but so far, I'm lonely in this compartment. If you liked this one, Rabbit Seasoning and Duck! Rabbit! Duck! are even better. Watch, and enjoy.
