Elmer Fudd expects to find "west and wewaxation" during his visit to Jellostone National Park, but he sets up camp in Bugs' backyard, and the rabbit (and a neighboring bear) definitely don't have leisure in mind.
Yosemite Sam is running for mayor, and one of his campaign promises is to get rid of all the rabbits. When Bugs runs against him as the "pro-bunny" candidate, Yosemite uses a number of elaborate stunts to eliminate his opponent (which all backfire). In the end, they're defeated by a dark horse candidate (an actual dark horse!).Written by
When Sam asks Bugs to play the piano, Bugs plays 2 distinctly different sour notes each time, but he is striking the exact same key. See more »

One of the better Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny cartoons.
Usually I am not a huge fan of the Looney Tunes cartoons where Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam are partnered together, as they almost always end up in a pretty mediocre string of slapstick jokes. Here, there were still slapstick jokes, but, for me, they seemed to be funnier and there seemed to be a secret personality let out from Yosemite Sam in this episode that I had not seen before (I do not want to give spoilers, but basically how he feels about partnership). Also, some of the slapstick gags included were ones that (according to reviewers on IMDb) have been repeated several times, I had not seen before, so I found them almost delightful to watch. (The piano one was one of them.) The theme of the episode was also quite entertaining. If there was one thing I did not like about this episode, it was that almost all of the jokes end up with dynamite going off or guns being fired. Pretty dull.
In this episode, we first see Yosemite Sam trying to place himself in the title of mayor, by convincing the townspeople to respect him. As he strings out a rather irrelevant list of things he will do for them, Sam tells the people he will eradicate every rabbit. Duh, Bugs Bunny is listening nearby - and of course -, he does his best to fight against Sam and become mayor. Cartoon capers commence...
I do not want you to go away thinking that I really like this episode, it is not one of my very favourites. It is one of my favourites which includes Bugs and Sam.
I recommend this to people who like all Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny jokes and for Looney Tunes fans in general. Enjoy "Ballot Box Bunny"! :-)
