Storyline

The big wrestling match: The Crusher vs. Ravishing Ronald. Ronald's mascot is Bugs Bunny ("it's a living"). But Ronald is massively outmatched by The Crusher, and Bugs, seeing his meal ticket threatened, quickly substitutes as "The Masked Terror." But Bugs is no match for him either, at least on a pure physical level. So it's time for Bugs to apply "strategy." He rips his mask, making Crusher think it was his pants fortunately, Stychen Tyme, the tailor, is handy - complete with needle to stick in a sensitive spot. Enraged, Crusher charges, right through the giant safe, into the ropes; Bugs closes the door, Crusher crashes into the safe and is dazed. Bugs suggests he rest up on this nice soft mat...

Trivia

"Ravishing Ronald" is modeled after wrestler Gorgeous George Wagner, who used many of the gimmicks Ronald does in this cartoon: a valet, perfume, dyed blonde hair and bobby pins. Unlike Ronald, however, Gorgeous George was actually a competent wrestler, and theatrical "cheating" was his trademark, not his opponents'. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the match when "The Crusher' offers Bugs to shake hands, he (and Bugs) shake with the left hand when it should be the right (not left) hand. See more »

With Bugs Bunny wrestling, who needs The Rock?
22 May 2005 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

Almost half a century before everyone got really obsessed with wrestling, that carrot-chomping rascal engaged in it...with a vengeance. After belligerent wrestler The Crusher clobbers a challenger, Bugs Bunny quickly enters the fray. At first, The Crusher has the upper hand, but of course Bugs has some tricks up his sleeve. Some of Bugs' antics seem a little risqué, especially for 1951, but there's nothing offensive here. These sorts of cartoons are the REAL definition of "family fun". As Chuck Jones once noted: "Bugs Bunny does what most of us would like to do, but don't have the nerve to do." Splendid.
