Trivia

Bugs Bunny stuck out four signs to lead Elmer Fudd to shoot Daffy Duck. (They are all in capital letters). In order they are, 1st GOAT SEASON OPEN; 2nd, DIRTY SKUNK SEASON; 3rd, PIGEON SEASON; 4th and last, MONGOOSE SEASON. See more »

Goofs

Towards the beginning of the feature, Bugs makes it clear that this story takes place in the middle of January. However, at the end, when he comes to Elmer posing as the Game Warden, he tells him it's baseball season. In reality, baseball season doesn't begin until April.

In reality, Bugs then goes to Daffy and asks him "what season is it really?" betraying the fact that telling Elmer it was baseball season was just another trick. See more »

Quotes

Daffy Duck: [to Elmer about Bugs] What is this, a cooking class? Shoot him! Shoot him!

If this is not one of the best cartoons ever then I'm a mongoose!
29 August 2002 | by javierveraSee all my reviews

From the whole Bugs/Daffy/Elmer hunting trilogy, this is without a doubt my favorite. Even though "Rabbit Fire" and "Rabbit Seasoning" are very good too, the reason why this one stands out is because it's an awesome combination of the previous two. While "Rabbit Fire" focused more on the visual gags, and "Rabbit Seasoning" more on the word games. This one had both visual jokes ("It's baseball season" LOL!) and word games, like when Daffy writes Elmer's "permit" to hunt rabbits (D-U-C-K). This a true masterpiece from writer Mike Maltese and director Chuck Jones, a definitely must see.
