In the mid-1990s, whenever Cartoon Network would have technical difficulties interrupting a broadcast, in lieu of a slide showing the channel logo/name, a still from this cartoon of the TV producer holding a "Program Temporarily Interrupted - Please Stand By" card up to the TV camera from would be used.

Satirises and epitomises the decline of cinema
3 November 2008 | by (Lincoln, England) – See all my reviews

Robert McKimson's 'Wideo Wabbit' is a weak and rather ugly Bugs and Elmer cartoon. Bugs is duped into taking part in Elmer's TV hunting show but refuses to be shot. Instead, he leads Elmer on a chase through the studio, impersonating various TV stars along the way including Groucho Marx, Liberace and Art Carney. The references are dated but that's not what makes the cartoon fail. From the outset it's clear there's something lacking and the instant you see the TV show's producer you know what it is. McKimson has gone for a more modern look and the extra characters in the short look positively hideous, clashing with the design of Bugs and Elmer (who are comparatively unattractive here too). The usually fantastic Arthur Q. Bryan seems to be going through the motions as Elmer, perhaps aware of the low quality material and unable to work up any enthusiasm. The whole affair seems tired and slow, building up to a painfully unfunny climax. 'Wideo Wabbit' acknowledges the rise of television which would eventually wipe out the cinematic cartoon. It also epitomises the decline in quality of the cinematic cartoon that TV brought about.
