Trivia

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 »

Quotes

Gildersleeve: He-he-he-he-he. Kind of outsmarted you. Eh, little chum?
Bugs Bunny: Hey, wait. Wait a minute. Say that again.
Gildersleeve: He-he-he-he-he. Kind of outsmarted you. Eh, little chum?
Bugs Bunny: Yeah, that's it. You know, you sound like that guy on the radio, the Great Gildersneeze.
Gildersleeve: I do? Aw. "He-he-he-he-he. Kind of outsmarted you. Eh, little chum?"
[Bugs takes the gun and tosses it away, but it goes off, alerting the manager]
Gildersleeve: Say, are you trying to pull a fast one?
Bugs Bunny: Well, confidentially, chubby... I just did.

Nobody skins Bugs and gets away with it.
2 April 2007 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

In another one of Bugs Bunny's hare-raisingly wacky shorts, the famous leporid* works in a department store display case, when owner Gildersleeve decides to stuff him. Of course, this proves nearly impossible, as Bugs apparently knows the store better than Gildersleeve (and knows when to cross-dress). As always, they keep everything coming at top speed, and so you have to wonder how hilarious this cartoon must have seemed when it first debuted! Among other things, "Hare Conditioned" is a fine example of how the Looney Tunes looked in the '40s before the Termite Terrace crowd polished them. But don't get me wrong, the cartoons were still really good after the refined forms arrived.

Anyway, this is a great one.

*Leporids are rabbits and hares.
