Storyline

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 <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Hands Down...One Of My Personal Favourites
10 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As much as I do like the Bugs Bunny shorts that pits Bugs against Elmer Fudd,and really enjoy the antics of Bugs versus Daffy Duck, I admit that I've always loved the general anarchy of Bugs vs. Yosemite Sam. Sam is such a bad tempered,runty little sour ball that Bugs getting the upper hand makes for natural laughs. In 'From Hare To Heir',Sam,the Duke of Yosemite has found out that his Uncle,the King has cut his allowance,due to Sam's spending. Bugs appears at the door with the promise of a million pounds,provided he can keep his temper in check. What follows is what has to be easily one of the funniest seven minutes ever captured on film. Bugs goes out of his way to monkey wrench Sam's inheritance by being really annoying. Sam's outbursts of bad temper (along with a pre-cursor of the Fred Flintstone school of swearing,which amounts to something like "racket fracket,beeble sticken",etc that's also good for some big laughs). Friz Freleng writes & directs this laugh out loud fest,with Mel Blanc supplying both Bugs & Sam's voice. If you can find this one playing on Cartoon Network,sit back & enjoy! Not rated,but contains a nearly non stop barrage of Yosemite Sam's brand of cursing (l.o.l.)
