Storyline

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

Who said the Civil War was over? Not Yosemite Sam!

This short is absolutely delightful! Yosemite Sam is a Confederate officer (looking remarkably youthful for someone who would be well over 100 years old) assigned to keep Yankees from coming South. Enter our intrepid hero, Bugs, stage left and much hi-jinks ensue. The close is great and probably is every Red Sox fan's secret wish. Well worth watching. Recommended.
