Trivia

There are at least three allusions to movie stars. A sign in the shop window mentions Rabbit Taylor, a reference to Robert Taylor. Bugs Bunny does a brief imitation of Katharine Hepburn. Later, he quotes Groucho Marx. ("Of course, you know this means war!") A comic strip character, who is popular in the movies, also gets a reference: Elmer Fudd opens his newspaper, wondering aloud how Dick Tracy made out. See more »

Perhaps this is an attempt at "range"!!! LOL
8 September 2003 | by PeachHamBeachSee all my reviews

I agree with a lot of the comments: this Bugs is different. After "A WILD HARE" by Tex Avery, this cartoon seems to be presenting some sort of "cousin" to Bugsy rather than the real thing. I noticed something very weird here: No BUCK TEETH!!! Not to mention this guy spoke in a different voice. Elmer is lovable and actually so is this strange bunny who wears yellow gloves, not white. He has some really funny moments. He does his share of highjinks and heckling, but still, this just isn't the Bugs we all know. So I have a suggestion: either they were still not sure who he was, or maybe he was trying to have some "range" of character!!!

Not a terrible member of the body of work I love, but not my fave either.
