Storyline

It's morning and Bugs Bunny is awake. It doesn't look like he had enough rest though. He looks around and sees he is high up in the sky. Bugs' hole has become part of an construction site and a bulldozer is ready to move his hole to destruction. Bugs makes an emotional plea to move his home back to it's original place and the construction worker seems touched. But his intentions aren't that well. Bugs Bunny swears revenge.

Trivia

When Bugs falls into the rain water barrel and regains his senses after taking an I-beam to the head, he lambasted that "This isn't Saturday night." Bugs is referring to the common task of rural and farm people of taking one bath a week, usually on Saturday night so they can be clean for church the next day. See more »

Goofs

Amusing but not a classic
20 July 2009 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

While the story of this Bugs Bunny short isn't one of the best the execution is great. The cartoon opens with Bugs' rabbit hole being dug up my a construction worker, of course this means war and we all know who is going to win. Bugs is soon getting his revenge; dropping items on the worker, bouncing him up and down in an elevator and then disguising himself as the works foreman and ordering the worker to build a tall structure which is topped by a see-saw where a few bricks prevent the worker from falling... as Bugs takes off the bricks the worker removes items of clothing till he is left in his underwear, Bugs shows no mercy and removes the final brick sending him falling. Bugs doesn't get it all his own way, he is stunned when the worker swings a girder into his face, in this stunned state he staggers around the top or the building, each time we thing he is about to fall he steps onto an item being moved by a crane or a conveniently placed rope. This is the most creative part of the cartoon, the second best part is what Bugs does next... I won't say what he does exactly, just that it involves the creative use of a very hot rivet.

Bugs is funny as usual and it was nice to see somebody get the better of him if only for a short while, it is just a shame the antagonist wasn't somebody more interesting. This was a nice addition to the DVD of "White Heat" starring James Cagney; a reminder that once when you went to the movies you got more than one film and a few adverts for your money.
