Wabbit Twouble (1941)

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.

Storyline

The sign greeting campers says, "Welcome to Jellostone National Park: A Restful Retreat." Elmer Fudd finds this to be a dirty lie when Bugs Bunny torments him for the fun of it. Bugs will trick Elmer into thinking day is night, mid-air is safe ground, and his rabbity self is a grizzly bear before Elmer commits an act he'll immediately regret. Written by J. Spurlin

Trivia

For this cartoon Elmer was redesigned as a fat man (based on voice actor Arthur Q. Bryan's own physique) in an attempt to make him funnier. Fat Elmer would only make four more appearances - The Wabbit Who Came to Supper (1942), The Wacky Wabbit (1942), Fresh Hare (1942) and Any Bonds Today? (1942) - before returning to the slimmer form by which he is better known. See more »

"Fat Elmer" makes his first and most famous appearance in a great cartoon by Bob Clampett.

"Wabbit Twouble" is one of the best early Bugs Bunny cartoons. Bob Clampett, wacky as ever, goes all-out with this production, using some of the best and surreal gags you'll see. And it's not just the gags with the "wascawwy wabbit" that are good; the intro is a great example of matching music to animation, but it's done in a surreal way. Like Frank Tashlin, Clampett emphasizes acceleration, and utilizes Elmer's gullibility and stupidity to the full. The last few gags are impeccable. The cartoon is simply great, it's so imaginative, and it has no restrictions. Clampett tries it all. Finally on DVD, and thank God for it!
