«Hey, what's up, Doc?»
29 March 2008 | by Atreyu_IISee all my reviews

This is a funny animated classic with Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd. Nothing spectacular, but quite enjoyable, fun and entertaining. It's one of those old-fashioned animated shorts with good artwork, classic humor, charm and full of amusement.

Bugs Bunny is a very smart rabbit. This time he's chased by Elmer Fudd, who wants to catch him. They go through several places (forests, the city, cinemas and even a circus at the end). Elmer Fudd, however, is so stupid that you have to feel sorry for him. His tries to catch the rabbit are always unsuccessful - he's always outsmarted by that rabbit and that's where all the fun is. His stupidity even makes him end up in a lion's mouth.

Bugs Bunny is voiced by one of Disney's most legendary artists: Mel Blanc, a guy with an extraordinary talent for doing voices and sounds, like few people ever had. His most famous line is one that everybody knows by heart: «Hey, what's up, Doc?».

Elmer Fudd's most famous lines in this are "wabbit" instead of "rabbit" and "on the contwawy" instead of "on the contrary".
