Elmer Fudd expects to find "west and wewaxation" during his visit to Jellostone National Park, but he sets up camp in Bugs' backyard, and the rabbit (and a neighboring bear) definitely don't have leisure in mind.
The cartoon opens with a slow-witted black hunter saying "I'm gonna get me a rhaaa-bittt!" He sees rabbit tracks that lead him straight to Bugs Bunny's hole. Bugs heckles the hunter by telling him which way the rabbit went, luring him into a bear cave (phewww!), followed by bullets following Bugs from hole to hole. Will he ever catch that rhaaa-bittt ?Written by

Despite popular belief, this cartoon was never fully remade substituting Elmer Fudd in place of the black hunter. One of the central scenes in the film was reanimated with Elmer in the opening of the cartoon The Big Snooze (1946), but that's it. See more »
Well, to be fair to the other reviews of this short, the hunter is basically Elmer, except black. But to counter most of the reviews, it not one of the best ones, or one that is a must have. I do think that it is an interesting short to watch, considering the time period in which it was made. Although some would disagree, I don't view this short as portraying the hunter dumb BECAUSE he is black, but it does stereotype him by the accentuated lips and of course, the craps game at the end. A good piece to watch for study, but not for entertainment.
