Man: Batten down the keelhaul! Yahoo! Kill the women and children first! Blood! Gore! Spit 'em on the tatters!
Narrator: Even a change of hats will usually bring certain changes.

Absolutely hilarious!
11 August 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest Bugs shorts they ever did. Oddly enough, for an intensely visual cartoon, the funniest bits are mostly verbal in nature. This has some incredibly funny dialogue, particularly Bugs echoing a portion of Elmer's opening harangue calling on Bugs to show himself. Bugs's take on the line and his whole reaction is priceless! Wonderful cartoon! Well worth watching. Most highly recommended!
