Gold prospector Elmer Fudd
5 September 2001 | by dimadickSee all my reviews

In this very good short Elmer Fudd is a gold prospector in a desert.He is constantly singing"Oh Susana".He has to face the hard conditions of the desert and also a certain Bugs Bunny out to demolish his every hope.One of my favorite shorts.Bugs and Elmer are real threats to each other.Bugs here is quite sinister too.Elmer doesn't even provoke him.The hopeless Elmer seems quite mad in the end when he laughs having taken his own gold tooth out.Serves to point how demented Warner Bros toons can be.Much better than today's sugary toons.
