Did You Know?

Due to pressure from Warner Bros., this cartoon was one of 11 pulled from rotation by the Cartoon Network for its 2001 "June Bugs" marathon, which was to show the complete chronology of Bugs Bunny cartoons. This is in addition to the "Censored 11" that have been withheld from distribution since 1968. The reason given was the short's potentially offensive depiction of Native Americans.See more »

curly hare, 19 September 2008
Author: Lee Eisenberg ( from Portland, Oregon, USA

The obvious point in Friz Freleng's "Horse Hare" is the stereotyping of American Indians. The plot has Bugs Bunny put in charge of defending an Old West fort from Yosemite Sam and a group of Indians (since when do cowboys and Indians form an alliance?). Bugs does what you might expect to Sam. While there's nothing totally original here, any classic Looney Tunes cartoon is a good one in my opinion. Of course, since their Golden Age was unequivocally winding down by this point, it was probably a good idea that they soon started retiring the characters. As it is, what I really like about the Yosemite Sam cartoons is that his loose-cannon personality always leads to his downfall. Maybe that's just me, but I still say so.

Anyway, an OK cartoon.
