Complete credited cast:
Bugs Bunny / Yosemite Sam / Accountant (voice)


Bedlam Manor, 17th-century England. Sam, the Duke of Yosemite, learns that the King has cut off his allowance and takes his frustrations out on his servant by slamming his large nose in the book. Just as he's complaining about where to get more funds, Bugs Bunny comes to the door. The bunny offers 1 million pounds to a mild-tempered person - he picks Sam - then provides an anger-management catch: If Sam loses his temper for any reason, Bugs gets to subtract from the balance. Sam, anxious for the cash, quickly becomes mild-tempered and welcomes Bugs into his palace. The rest of the cartoon depicts Bugs playing the role of annoying house guest, seemingly to test Sam's temper and patience. Sam loses every time, as he blows his cool when he's asked repeatedly to pass the salt, pepper and ketchup; Bugs hears Sam grumble under his breath and deducts from his cash account; Sam can't even go outside to vent his anger without Bugs knowing about it. That night, Bugs keeps Sam awake with an ... Written by Brian Rathjen <>

One of my favourite Looney Tunes cartoons of all time!
3 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

From Hare to Heir is a brilliant and non-stop laugh-fest from start to finish. As much as I do thoroughly enjoy the Bugs Bunny-Yosemite Sam shorts, From Hare to Heir is up there with their absolute best, as well as Fritz Freleng's. Bugs is intelligent, arrogant and likable all at the same time, but I found Yosemite Sam was the one to stole the show, his temper, sayings and everything about him just cracks me up. His and Bugs' rapport is a vital part of From Hare to Heir and in the form of a psychological battle between the two it is done perfectly. The dialogue has the freshness and wit you expect from Looney Tunes, "rackin' frackin'" I'll remember to use when I want to let my temper out. From Hare to Heir is full of hilarious gags, right from the dinner scene, lullaby scene, when Sam falls through his trap twice, Sam' fall down the stairs and any scene where Sam runs away and lets his temper out. The animation has lots of beautiful colour and every frame, character and detail is constructed seamlessly. The music has always been a big part of Looney Tunes' success other than the characters and the humour, and there is some great energy and lush orchestration here. Mel Blanc is brilliant as both Bugs and Sam. All in all, I've run out of words to describe the brilliance of From Hare to Heir, 10/10 Bethany Cox
