Bugs Bunny: [Wile E. has trapped him in a bag] Eh, whatcha got in the bag, Doc?
Wile E. Coyote: Oh, I say. I'm terribly sorry. One mustn't be rude, even to one's breakfast.
Bugs Bunny: Breakfast?
Wile E. Coyote: Permit me to introduce myself. My name is Coyote. Wile E. Coyote, genius.
Bugs Bunny: Have brain, eh? Hey, that must be very handy at times.
Wile E. Coyote: Why, yes, it has its advantages. For example, you asked me just now what I had in the bag, and I was supposed to say, "A rabbit," to which you would reply, "What are you going to do with him?" Then I ...

this cartoon truly represents what the baby boom generation grew up with
8 December 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Sort of a sequel to "Operation: Rabbit", Chuck Jones's "To Hare Is Human" once again has an eloquent Wile E. Coyote trying to trap Bugs Bunny. Needless to say, Bugs always avoids harm, and WEC gets harmed in the process. But even more than that is how this cartoon represents what the baby boom generation grew up with. Bugs vacuums his rabbit hole with his ears tied up like a 1950s housewife, and he even owns a womb chair! Imagine that: Bugs Bunny as Laura Petrie (Mary Tyler Moore's character on "The Dick Van Dyke Show")! Not to mention that the Univac sounds like a 1950s product, and looks like an early computer.

But maybe I'm reading too far into the cartoon. It was probably intended as pure entertainment, and it entertains. Worth seeing.
