and that's the way it is, varmint, 9 March 2008
Author: Lee Eisenberg (lee.eisenberg.pdx@gmail.com) from Portland, Oregon, USA

I should say that Friz Freleng's "Piker's Peak" is pretty much what you'd expect in a Bugs Bunny/Yosemite Sam cartoon, with Bugs interfering with Sam's aims. But how can you not love what Bugs does to Sam? You gotta admit that Bugs can be a real jerk sometimes. Of course, Sam is a loose cannon, so that balances things out.

Seeing that the reward is measured in Cronkites, that brings up an interesting point. The obvious connection is Walter Cronkite. He wasn't yet the CBS Evening News anchor, but maybe he was a reporter at this time. But there's something else: the German word "Krankheit" - and yes, it is capitalized (as are all nouns in German) - means "sickness". And I remember that James Coburn's character in the movie "Candy" was Dr. Krankheit. What a mixture! OK, probably none of that relates to the cartoon. I'm sure that Friz Freleng intended the cartoon as pure entertainment, and it certainly entertains. Above all, it shows what a neat place Switzerland probably is. True, they don't really produce anything except chocolates and watches, but seriously folks, they gave us Ursula Andress! (hubba hubba)

Anyway, a pretty neat cartoon. That'll never be all, folks.
