The Coliseum, Emperor Nero want to threw a victim to the lions, but finds out that they run out of victims. then he order Yosemite Sam to fetch one for him. after noticing Bugs Bunny he tries to make him the victim.
Robert McKimson's 'Rabbit Romeo' is a decent little cartoon which is completely stolen by the wonderful June Foray, whose voice work as Millicent the Slobovian rabbit is the best thing in the cartoon. Elmer Fudd (who looks a little bit odd here) is promised $500 if he looks after his Uncle's pet rabbit until he arrives. The rabbit turns out to be an obese, overly familiar lady bunny who longs for company, preferably of the male variety. Elmer tricks Bugs into coming home with him, where Millicent proceeds to relentlessly pursue the terrified rabbit. It's a slightly thin premise which runs dry quite quickly but, despite never hitting the heights of hilarious comedy, 'Rabbit Romeo' is consistently amusing enough to never become dull. Still, the only thing that really sticks in the memory after it is over is June Foray's spot-on voice characterisation. The rest is fairly run-of-the-mill stuff and not especially conducive to repeated viewings.
