Daffy Duck has signs hanging from every inch of every available tree announcing that it's rabbit season. But, you guessed it - it's really duck season. Elmer Fudd appears: he's the only hunter alive dumb enough to fall for the gag. He's even dumber than that. When Bugs Bunny strides up to him and asks how the rabbit hunting is going, Elmer admits that he hasn't seen a rabbit yet. This is more than Daffy can stand. He emerges from his hiding place and immediately points to a rabbit: Bugs Bunny. "Shoot him now!" Daffy screams. "You be quiet," says Bugs. "He doesn't have to shoot you now." Daffy insists that he does. After Daffy returns his blasted-off beak to his head, he is doomed to more arguments infected with "pronoun trouble" which all have the same result. Later, Bugs dresses as a sexy woman and flirtingly ask Elmer for a duck dinner. Will Daffy get the last laugh? "Ha, ha, very funny! Ha, ha, ha!" Written by
Very funny Bugs & Daffy cartoon. The second of their hunting trilogy with Elmer Fudd. The cartoon starts with a series of signs Daffy has put up to direct Elmer to Bugs' home, telling him it's rabbit season. He's hoping Elmer will shoot Bugs. Needless to say, things don't go as Daffy planned. The rest of the short is Bugs outsmarting Daffy and getting him to say or do the wrong things, which usually results in dimwitted Elmer shooting him. Sounds so simple but that's the beauty of it. It's brilliant in its simplicity. Classic comedy from Chuck Jones and Michael Maltese. Great voice work from Mel Blanc and Arthur Q. Bryan. One of the best Looney Tunes ever made.
