The department store manager is a parody of The Great Gildersleeve, a character played by Harold Peary in the radio program "Fibber McGee and Molly". Gildersleeve was so popular he was spun off into his own radio show, "The Great Gildersleeve", as well as a series of feature films and a TV series (The Great Gildersleeve (1954)). See more »
Not being familiar with the subject of this parody - "The Great Gildersleeve," from the hit radio program "Fibber McGee and Molly," I guess I couldn't appreciate the humor in here. This guy - the store manager - wasn't funny to me.
Bugs is working in a department store and things are going fine until he's transferred to the taxidermy room where he's going to be the next animal stuffed. To no surprise, Bugs is not thrilled with that prospect and does what he can to outwit "Gildersleeve."
When the two start chasing each other all around the huge department store is when this cartoon gets funny....and very clever with the changing-clothes bits. That made up for slow first half.
