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

Coronel, the Yankees... the Yankees, they're in Chattanooga.
[Cut to a stadium, where the Yankees are playing an exhibition game against Chattanooga; Sam has the Yankees held up in their dugout
The first dang Yankee to step out of that dugout gets his head blasted off.
