Storyline

Yosemite Sam, as Sam von Schpamm the Hessian, attacks Bugs Bunny's fort during the Battle of Bagel Heights in the American War of Independence. In typical fashion for anyone daring to go up agains Bugs, everything backfires until Sam, ultimately, declares himself "...a Hessian without no aggression".

Bugs And Sam Fight It Out In 1776
5 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

It's 1776 and the Revolutionary War is on. No, it's not "Bunker Hill," as the graphic first shows. It's not "Yorktown," it's the "Battle of Bagle Heights." (Okaaay.)

Anyway, the "battle" is strictly between two contestants, the only ones at each fort. Yosemite Sam, known in this picture as "Sam Von Schmamm, the Hussion," battles Bugs Bunny.

Most of the cartoon features the two adversaries firing cannons at one another or charging each other with bayonets. Needless to say, ole Sam takes the worst of it on each occasion. Although it's strictly a one-joke cartoon, I enjoyed it. I laughed at some of the old-time clichés and expressions Sam used while yelling at Bugs, such as: "You ornery, fur-bearing rebel! You'll pay for this! You better say your prayers, you flea-bitten varmit!"

Bugs has only one reply: "Ah, your mother blows bubble gum!"
