Horrified, when he hears his master is threatening to get rid of Pussyfoot unless the kitten starts catching mice, Marc Anthony the bulldog tries to tutor his little charger, into proper feline behavior.
In this parody of trench-coat detective films, Daffy Duck is Duck Drake, a "Private Eye, Ear, Nose, and Throat" who receives a telephone call summoning him to the J. Cleaver Axe-Handle ... See full summary »
He may not find Slobovian rabbits attractive, but he would have fallen for her had she been Russian!
One might assume that Bugs Bunny's resistance to Slavic rabbit Millicent is based on a previous negative experience that he had with a Slav (the Eastern European bear in "Big Top Bunny"). Anyway, the plot of Robert McKimson's "Rabbit Romeo" has Elmer Fudd receiving from his uncle Judd a an overweight Slobovian rabbit who gets violent when lonely. So, he captures Bugs and tries to give him to Millicent.
If I may interject something. Clearly this Slavic character didn't please Bugs. However, if Uncle Judd had sent a Russian female rabbit, then Bugs's hormones would have gone through the roof! I know this, because while I was staying with a family in St. Petersburg, Russia - I spent the Fall 2005 college semester there - I developed a total crush on my host sister Marina (OK, I'll be totally candid: I still fantasize about her; it arouses me just to think about her as I write this). I like to describe her physically as a cross between Barbara Eden and Julie Christie. My point is that any female Russian rabbit/hare/bunny would have sent Bugs's sex drive into full throttle! Anyway, worth seeing. June Foray does a pretty good Eastern European accent, and the Slobovian clothes actually looked Greek.
