Alternate Versions

Some network TV airings of this cartoon have altered the scene where Elmer shoots Daffy, and Daffy's bill spins. This version cuts from Elmer pointing the gun to a shot of Daffy's bill spinning. The syndicated prints shown on TNT and Cartoon Network in the 1980s and early 1990s do not eliminate the shooting of the gun. Instead, there is a freeze frame (from another part of the cartoon) showing some scenery. The gun shot is heard, and then there is a cut back to Daffy's bill spinning. Today, when this cartoon is shown on TV, nothing is changed or cut out. See more »

The beginning to the greatest trilogy ever made
22 May 2002 | by Betelgeuse-19See all my reviews

10/10 It is hard to say what is the best trilogy ever made. Some would say Star Wars, others The Godfather, some Die Hard, and a few would say Evil Dead. Oh, and the Tim Burton Batman trilogy. You know what? None of them reach the height of the shorts Rabbit Fire, Rabbit Seasoning, and Duck! Rabbit! Duck!; aka The Hunting Trilogy. If more people watched these shorts, they would agree, but so far, I'm lonely in this compartment. If you liked this one, Rabbit Seasoning and Duck! Rabbit! Duck! are even better. Watch, and enjoy.
