Trivia

In the sequence where Bugs ties Elmer to the railroad tracks and pretends to run him over with a train, Elmer's cries of "Oh, agony, agony, agony!" are provided by Mel Blanc instead of Arthur Q. Bryan. See more »

Goofs

After the dream, Elmer arrives back at the log in a rush and the pieces of contract blow about in the air. A nearly off-screen Bugs on the left looks like he mouthes his catchphrase: "Ehhhh, What's up Doc?", but there is no sound. See more »

Quotes

Bugs Bunny: [trying to convince Elmer not to leave] No. No, doc. You can't do this to me. Think of what we've been to each other. Why, we've been like... like Rabbit and Costello, Damon and Runyan...
[tugs at Elmer's pants]
Bugs Bunny: Stan and Laurel...!
[rips them off accidentally and puts them back on]
Bugs Bunny: You can't do this, I tell ya. You don't want to break up the act, do ya?
[aside to audience]
Bugs Bunny: Bette Davis is going to hate me for this.
[back to Elmer]
Bugs Bunny: Think of your career.
[turns back to audience, shocked]

Alternate Versions

One version omits the scene where Bugs Bunny takes the sleeping pills (possibly an act of political correctness). This scene is left intact in the 2004 Looney Tunes 4-disc box set. See more »

Clampett goes out with a bang
29 October 2005 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

In this last Bob Clampett Looney Tunes short, Elmer Fudd is thoroughly appalled by the treatment he always winds up getting from Bugs Bunny, so he decides enough is enough, tears up his Warner Brothers contract and commits himself to fishing for the rest of his days. Bugs is mortified of course (for his own job security mind you) and when he finds Elmer dreaming, he takes a sleeping pill and enters his pleasant dream to turn it into a nightmare. This is a hilarious if a wee bit surreal cartoon that can be seen on Disc 1 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2. It also features an optional commentary by animator Bill Melendez that is pretty good.

My Grade: A
