Complete credited cast:
Bugs Bunny / Chairman of the Board / Board Members / Dr. Oro Myicin / Driver / Bear / Revenue Agent / Elmer Fudd (voice)


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 <>

A very clever Bugs Bunny episode.
7 June 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

In this Looney Tunes episode, Elmer seems to think he is a rabbit and is sent to an asylum. Elmer Fudd meets Bugs Bunny and without Bug's realising he swaps places. AKA Elmer Fudd is now a rabbit and Bugs Bunny is now Elmer Fudd thinking he's a rabbit. Confusing? Yep, it is confusing all right! After this the proper humour of the short kicks in and is indeed VERY humorous.

This is one of my favourite Bugs Bunny episodes, due to the clever way the plot is laid out, the funny gags and the funny quotes. Bugs Bunny is very entertaining and Elmer receives his best part of the episode in the last fifteen seconds or so.

I recommend this to people who like clever Looney Tunes episodes and Bugs Bunny, as he is the star. Enjoy! :-)
