Storyline

In this tale of role-reversal, Elmer Fudd (the president of an unnamed company) somehow believes he's a rabbit running scared from hunters' gunfire. This fact is not lost on the corporate board, who agree to place the delusonal Fudd in an asylum, where he dons a rabbit's costume and eats carrots. Elmer sees arch-rival Bugs Bunny walking by and tricks him into switching places. After Elmer leaves, the psychiatrist assigned to Fudd's case enters the room and (after having the bunny down a pill) gets the clueless Bugs to endlessly repeat the phrase: "I am Elmer J. Fudd, miwwonaire. I own a mansion and a yacht!" Later, Bugs (now convinced he's Elmer Fudd) leaves the mansion and goes hunting. After a series of hunting gags with Bugs getting the worst end of things this time the authorities come to take Bugs (still thinking he's Elmer) away for income tax evasion. Seems as though Fudd owed thousands in back taxes and he cleverly planned the entire scheme. Written by <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

"Brother, you got yourself a preposition."
29 December 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is a weird one but fun. It starts off with Elmer Fudd as the head of his own company with his name on a skyscraper and everything. His board of directors are holding a meeting and we soon find out why: Elmer has gone crazy and believes himself to be a rabbit. Through a series of wacky events, Elmer switches places with Bugs who is hypnotized into thinking he's really Elmer the millionaire and hunter. Crazy stuff and it just gets crazier from there. It's a nice idea to do a role reversal between Bugs and Elmer but man this short gets there strangely. Points for originality, though. Arthur Q. Bryan and Mel Blanc are both great. Nice music and animation. Good short but be prepared for it to be an odd one. The ending is great.
