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>

I bet that lots of CEOs owe that much in back taxes
21 March 2010 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Elmer has hunted Bugs many times, but Friz Freleng's "Hare Brush" puts a little spin on it. Elmer is a corporate CEO who believes himself to be a rabbit. His board of directors decides to put him in an institution. When Bugs walks by his window, he summons the wascally wabbit to the room and manages to escape. After the psychiatrist convinces Bugs that HE is Elmer, Bugs goes hunting and meets Elmer. But a twist at the end implies that the events of the cartoon were no accident! At the very least, it was neat to see Elmer and Bugs with their roles reversed, to the point that they even say the other's line. The part about tax evasion brings to mind the corporate scandals of the past few years. No telling how much Ken Lay owed in back taxes.

Anyway, really funny.
