Storyline

Relaxing with a carrot at an army air field, Bugs is reading "Victory Through Hare Power," and scoffs at the notion of "gremlins," little creatures who wreak havoc on planes with their "dia-bo-lickal sabo-tay-gee." His reading is interrupted by a clanging sound, and it turns out to be a little wing-headed being pounding on a bockbuster bomb with a mallet. Written by Paul Penna <tterrace@wco.com>

Trivia

In the early 1940s Walt Disney was developing a feature film based on Roald Dahl's book "Gremlin Lore", and asked the other studios to refrain from producing gremlin films. While most of the studios complied, Warner Bros. already had two cartoons too far into production - this cartoon and Russian Rhapsody (1944). As a compromise, Leon Schlesinger re-titled the cartoons to remove any reference to gremlins. The original title was "Bugs Bunny and the Gremlin". Ultimately, the Disney film was not produced or released. See more »

Quotes

Bugs Bunny: [Bugs has just been hit on the head with a wrench] Which way did he go, George, which way did he go?
The Gremlin: Hmmm...
[points in both directions]
The Gremlin: That way.
Bugs Bunny: Well, gee, thanks a lot George, thanks a lot.
[upon taking his first step, he immediately falls to the floor. The Gremlin runs over to him and pulls his eyelids open]
The Gremlin: What's the matter, bunny rabbit? Speak to me. Why don't you say something?
Bugs Bunny: I'm only three-and-a-half years old. B-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b.
The Gremlin: I like him, he's silly!

Bugs on the Other End
26 March 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Bugs encounters a gremlin, a character that destroys airplanes. No matter what Bugs does, he gets pounded, crushed, abused, and done in. This is unusual because of all the Warner Brothers characters, he is the one that is usually in total control. He is the abuser. Here, it is 1943, and the propaganda is thick. It's an action packed episode.
