Storyline

An African witch doctor is cooking up a potion in his big black pot. He has the lizard tongue, fish eyes, gnats' eyebrows, jigger of xxx, bee-stingers, leopard spots and frogs' legs. But he throws a screaming tantrum when he discovers that he's out of rabbit. Meanwhile, Bugs Bunny decides to go to Kuka Munga (one mile) instead of Hubba Hubba (also one mile). He made a bad choice. He meets the witch doctor, who captures him and throws him into his pot. Bugs at first thinks the doc is offering him a hot bath. But when he smells himself cooking, he realizes the horrible truth. Bugs will have to disguise himself as a native female and battle an alligator before his latest adventure is over. Written by J. Spurlin

Trivia

Due to pressure from Warner Bros., this cartoon was one of 11 pulled from rotation by the Cartoon Network for its 2001 "June Bugs" marathon, which was to show the complete chronology of Bugs Bunny cartoons. This is in addition to the "Censored 11" that have been withheld from distribution since 1968. The reason given was the short would potentially offend African-Americans. See more »

[jumps up and lands with his tail in the air]
Bugs Bunny: Heh! Tails! I go that way.

not totally under a spell
11 July 2007 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

One of those cartoons pulled from circulation due to racially offensive material. "Which Is Witch?" portrays Bugs Bunny getting chased by witch doctor I.C. Spots, but always outsmarting the guy. Obviously, it no longer looks appropriate how they portray Africa, but there are some funny gags throughout (namely "heads or tails"). Probably equally offensive as the representation of Africans is what happens with the crocodile.

So, it's OK to watch as long as you understand what it portrays. Personally, I wish that someone would make a movie portraying an African person teaching materialistic white people how to live communally.
