Trivia

As Bugs is pleading with Elmer not to quit, he turns to the audience and comments, "'Bette Davis' is gonna hate me for this." Davis, at the time, was going through a well-publicized legal battle with Warner Bros. trying to get out of her contract. 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

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 »

"Bette Davis is gonna hate me for this."
22 September 2015 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Bob Clampett's final short for Warner Bros. is a classic Bugs & Elmer cartoon. Elmer's tired of the routine they're in where he chases Bugs but never wins. So he tears up his contract and quits the cartoon! Bugs, determined to get Elmer back, invades his dreams (like Freddy Krueger) leading to some surreal and wacky imagery. The music is bouncy and cheerful. The voice work from Mel Blanc and Arthur Q. Bryan is expectedly flawless. The animation is beautiful with well-drawn characters and backgrounds and lovely Technicolor. The dream stuff is amazing. Funny gags, lines, and fourth-wall breaking makes this one any Looney Tunes fan will want to see.
