The numbers on the inheritance letter do not add up. He ends up owing $1.98; however, he should be really receiving $902,932.04. And a mere 1.7% Defense Tax seems very low for the times when President Dwight D. Eisenhower was talking about 100% tax rates. See more »

Fun but flawed take on a well-used storyline that was perfected with MGM's 'Million Dollar Cat'
When Elmer Fudd's Uncle Louie bequeaths him 3 million dollars on the condition that he doesn't hurt any living creatures, Bugs Bunny exploit's the situation by moving into his house and taking over his life. Friz Freleng's 'The Wabbit Who Came to Supper' is a fun take on a classic, much used storyline which was probably best realised in the Tom and Jerry classic 'The Million Dollar Cat'. Freleng's take on the tale is also very fine, overcoming the odd pacing problems with some very funny moments. My favourite bit is Bugs's petty duping of Elmer out of a nickel. Also notable is the famous premature New Year routine and the early take on the "Don't go down there, it's dark" gag (perfected in 'Hair Raising Hare'). This is a very early Bugs Bunny cartoon and you can occasionally tell by the odd look of the characters. Aside from the obese version of Elmer (an early experiment that was quickly abandoned), Bugs occasionally looks extremely weird, never more so than in the scene when he examines his teeth in a mirror. Nevertheless, it's a joy to watch Bugs and Elmer alternately turn the tables on each other resulting in a great climactic chase. The closing gag is a little weak but by that time 'The Wabbit Who Came to Supper' has done more than enough to endear itself to the viewer. While it falls short of classic, 'The Wabbit Who Came to Supper' never fails to entertain with its fast paced, well-timed antics.
