Quotes

[Bugs had been asked by the QTTV producer to climb to the top of a ladder and sit down on the cushion on the very top of it]
Bugs Bunny: What's sitting up here on this cushion got to do with my television career?
QTTV Producer: Well, you see, most people have to start at the bottom of the ladder. But we're starting you at the top. We like you.

A Nostalgic Look At Mid-'50s TV
31 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bugs Bunny envisions himself being a television star when he sees an ad in the newspaper that reads, "Wanted: Rabbit For Personal Appearance On TV; Opportunity for Career in TV. Apply in Person."

Unfortunately, he's going to be used as the prey for Elmer Fudd's "The Sportsman Hour," who offers handy hunting hints. This week's topic just happens to be how to track down and shoot a live rabbit!

After a few shots, Bugs runs for cover, followed by Elmer yelling, "Come back here , you wetched wabbit, you're wecking my pwogwam!" (BTW, the politically-correct English subtitles always correct the pronunciations.)

The best parts are Bugs imitation other people in other studios, such as Groucho Marx in his program "You Bet Your Life." Except in this cartoon, it's "You Beat Your Wife." Wow, at least the PC police didn't edit the cartoon, just the subtitles.

As a little kid growing up about this time, I can still recall all the TV programs mentioned here, like "You Asked For It," "You Were There" and "The Liberace Show."

Overall, this was more nostalgic than funny, to be honest. I enjoyed it, but there aren't a lot of laughs.
