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

What's the hassle, Schmasel?
My orders from General Lee is to hold the Mason-Dixie line, and no Yankees are crossing it.
General Lee? Why, the War between the States ended almost 90 years ago.
I'm no clock watcher.
