Storyline

When Bugs finds out that the bounty for rabbits is only two cents, he asks the bounty commissioner why. He's told that the bounty is so low because rabbits are harmless animals. Bugs decides to change that by being a national menace. Written by Ondre Lombard <olombard@lombard.cyberverse.com>

Trivia

The Southern Congressman that says "This hare must die!" and Bugs Bunny's comeback "It's a joke, son, ya missed it!" is a reference to a catchphrase of "Senator Claghorn", a movie character played by Kenny Delmar. Senator Claghorn inspired Foghorn Leghorn, and to some degree, Yosemite Sam. See more »

Not quite a classic, but still extremely good
4 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

As a huge Looney Tunes fan, I have always thoroughly enjoyed Rebel Rabbit. Maybe it is not quite one of Bugs' or Looney Tunes' best, but it is one of my favourite Robert McKimson shorts. I do agree about the park bench gag, I have never really found that particular gag funny. Every other gag works though, with the ending especially memorable. The dialogue is also very fresh and witty, so on the humour side Rebel Rabbit scores with no problem. The animation is wonderful, the colours and character designs are classic McKimson and look beautiful, while the music is characterful energy personified. The story is engaging at the very least, and very crisply paced so there is rarely, if any, a dull moment. Bugs is on great form, he has been more likable before but his humour and personality do really shine here as you'd expect. Mel Blanc's voice work is right on the money, I've rarely heard Blanc put a foot wrong and Rebel Rabbit is no exception. Overall, not a classic for me, but still highly recommended with no hesitation. 9/10 Bethany Cox
