Who Dresses Elmer?
27 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

It's still odd for me to watch these old Bugs Bunny cartoons and see an elongated Bugs and a huge Elmer Fudd. Nonetheless, that's what we get here as Elmer is racing through the forest with a shotgun after Bugs. By the way - what kind of hunting outfit is that: a bowler hat, reddish-pink shirt and green tie???!

Just as Bugs is about to get it, a telegram boy on a scooter arrives with a telegram for Elmer, stating that Uncle Louie is giving him three million dollars! But there is a "P.S." that says "You don't get one cent if hurt any animals, especially rabbits."

You just know Bugs, who is reading this over Elmer's shoulder, is going to make life miserable for him (at least in the next six minutes of this eight-minute cartoon). The rabbit wastes no time, either. By the time Elmer races home, the "wascally wabbit" is already in his shower! r Bugs knows a good thing when he sees it - blackmail, to get food and other goodies (or "I'll call Uncle Louie").

I almost felt sorry for the poor sap Fudd as Bugs puts on his "Academy Award" dramatic performance but, in the end, both guys wind up losers as the cartoon writers used the familiar "taxes" bit on the inheritance.

Overall, the humor was too dated and not really ready-for-prime time stuff (the 1950s) but the restoration job on this Golden Collection disc was tremendous. That artwork made Elmer's house look pretty impressive. He might have been a dumb dodo but he had nice- looking furnished house.
