Complete credited cast:


This cartoon has not appeared unedited on American television for decades. The edited sequence shows Bugs Bunny trying to cross the Mason-Dixon line in black-face (brownface?). He sings two songs (the second of which, "Yankee Doodle", enrages Confederate Sam) then, placing a whip in the bewildered Sam's hand, Bugs acts as if Sam is going to beat him. Bugs then exits and re-enters as an indignant Abe Lincoln. Written by sndsfnny

Critters and Yankees
10 June 2004 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Amusing little banned Bugs Bunny episode in which he goes to the south, as all the big carrots are to be found there. On the 'border' of north and south he has an encounter with Yosemite Sam who has to defend the border, as he thinks the two sides are still at war at each other.

Bugs dresses up a couple of times (as Lincoln and Scarlet O'Hara, among others) to subdue Sam.

There are a couple of hilarious scenes, in particular one including a bomb and the end scene, when Sam takes on 'The Yankees', unaware that a base-ball team is carrying this name nowadays.

In short: very funny and not as offensive as other banned cartoons. 7/10.
