Storyline

Elmer Fudd hopes to receive a promotion by agreeing to take care of his boss' dog, Rupert, for a weekend. But Rupert thinks of himself as a human and expects to be treated as such. So, Elmer must patronize his canine guest by feeding him prime steak and letting him sleep in a human bed, while Elmer eats dog food and sleeps in a doggie bed. The next morning, Rupert drinks Bay Rum from Elmer's medicine cabinet and goes for a joy-ride in Elmer's car! Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

With this DOG GONE PEOPLE short . . .
29 November 2015 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. . . Warner Bros. contends that it's better to be the dog of a One Per Center than any one of the other 346.5 million Americans (adjusted for population inflation, of course). Elmer Fudd works in some personal capacity for a Fortune 500 CEO with a namesake 110-story company headquarters tower. When Boss Crabtree experiences a schedule conflict, he expects Elmer to board his mutt Rupert regardless of Mr. Fudd's own personal agenda. Elmer is required to feed Rupert HIS OWN SUPPER, and turn over his toothbrush, bed, and car to this totally spoiled canine. Though Rupert gets busted on a DUI charge, it's Elmer who winds up in Crabtree's doghouse. History shows us that a Queen can maintain a stiff upper lip when losing a warship crewed by hundreds of 99 Per Centers, but when she comes up a Corgi short she's all tears. Perhaps Milhouse Nixon's "Checker's Speech" inspired Warner to produce DOG GONE PEOPLE. (That's the rant in which Tricky Dick told the Press where they could go if they kicked around his mongrel mutt Checkers again.) Or maybe it was the one where he complained that actress Thelma Ryan had just a "plain cloth coat to wear," rather than a Dalmation fur such as the one sported by Cruella De Vil.
