In what could easily become the next wave of reality 'home repair' shows, Daffy shows up unexpected at Elmer Fudd's home and gives it the 'modern' touch. In other words, he installs an endless number of automatic time-saving devices throughout the house. And, as we can already predict, none of these mechanisms seem to work for everyone's favorite hunter.

Over 50 years later, we have a number of time-saving mechanisms throughout our own home (one of which I'm using to write this very review), but thankfully we've skipped the 'Dirty Window Cleaner', the 'Alcatrez Ascot Tie Machine', and the 'Upstairs-Downstairs Elevator'. Still, with the way humanity races to keep up with technology, I wonder how long it will be before we see stuff like this in our own homes! Still, this is a classic cartoon and a laugh riot, especially for people who became fond of watching Elmer paired with another cartoon character besides Bugs Bunny.

Enjoy, and remember, no matter what you do... DON'T EVER PUSH THE RED BUTTON!!
