Storyline

Bugs lands on a Japanese-held island. He tries to outsmart one Japanese soldier by dressing as Emperor Hirohito, but the soldier isn't fooled. He recognizes Bugs from his Warner Brothers films produced by Leon Schlesinger. Bugs has trouble with a tough sumo wrestler but is able to outwit him by dressing as a geisha. Bugs finally rids the island of Japanese by driving up in his ice cream truck (which plays music from The Magic Flute!) and selling each one an ice cream with a secret grenade surprise.

Best Bugs Bunny Cartoon you never saw
27 February 2002 | by NYGuy322See all my reviews

I managed to find this cartoon at a video store that had many rare videos on it shelves, this was on a video along with a few other Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck cartoons, I must say, besides the horrible stereotyping of Japanese, this cartoon is not that bad. If you can look past these stereotypes, what you will get at the end is a brilliant and funny cartoon from Bugs Bunny. My personal favorite gag for this cartoon is when Bugs fools the soldiers by disguising himself as the Good Humor man and giving out Popsicle sticks with explosives in them, then one soldier comes back, at first the audience might think he is on to Bugs's tricks, but never fear folks, the soldier only comes back to inform Bugs that his popsicle stick says he gets another free popsicle, classic stuff.
