Very funny Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam short directed by Friz Freleng. In this one Sam is the Duke of Yosemite, who has just discovered the King has cut off his allowance and he's now broke. Then Bugs shows up at his door and tells Sam that he will inherit one million pounds so long as he keeps his temper in check. Throughout the cartoon, the volatile Sam struggles to stay calm in order to win the money. All it takes is having seen one Sam cartoon before this to know how hard that would be for him.

One of the better '60s Bugs shorts, although Sam is more the star here and gets all the funny material. Great voice work from Mel Blanc. Nice music from Milt Franklyn. The animation is good, even if it's that slightly sketchy style from the later years that I don't prefer. The colors are beautiful. It's a fun cartoon with Yosemite Sam at his ornery but lovable best.
