Trivia

The legendary Chuck Jones left Warner Brothers for four months over the production of this cartoon, which he felt was unsatisfactory. He went to Disney for those months, and worked on Sleeping Beauty (1959), but eventually realized that, although he thought Walt Disney was an excellent producer, the company was not right for him. A famous meeting occurred when Disney told Jones "We can work out something for you" and Jones responded "Well, you have one job here that I want, and that's yours!" to which Disney said "I'm sorry, it's filled." It was the only time Jones left the company in a career that lasted over 25 years, until Jones was "let go" with the animation department in 1962. See more »

Chuck Jones' Lumber Jack-Rabbit with Bugs Bunny is the only Warner Bros. cartoon made in 3-D
3 September 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this Bugs Bunny cartoon on YouTube. This is the one Warner Bros. made in 3-D as evidenced by the beginning which has the familiar WB shield going further in front when it moves forward. I hope to one day see it in the format it was meant to be seen originally but I enjoyed it just the same. I mean, look at the many gags that emphasized the small size of Bugs and the big size of the giant dog Smidgen who happens to be Paul Bunyan's pet here. Oh, and he also looks like Porky Pig's usual dog Charlie. Since this animated short is helmed by Charlie's creator Chuck Jones, that seems to be more than a coincidence. Anyway, this was a very funny short though I didn't get the ending. Still, Lumber Jack-Rabbit comes highly recommended. P.S. It's always nice whenever Mel Blanc sings something in character like here with "Blue Tail Fly".
