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!

Daffy Gets The Worst Of It Again
11 June 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This is another one of those "It's duck season. No, it's rabbit season." You know, back-and- forth as Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck each try to send stupid Elmer Fudd off to shoot the other guy during hunting season, beginning with signs pointing the way. There were three of these similar-themed animated shorts, one each year from 1951-53. This was the final one of what some call "the hunting trilogy."

Anyway, as usual, Bugs gives Elmer some ridiculous line which is working until Daffy interrupts, saying "What is this? A cooking class? Shoot him!" Daffy was always one to get right to the point....but Bugs is the brains of the three.

The parts that made me laugh hardest were the looks on Daffy's face several times, like the kind Jack Benny used to make. It's also incredible how many times the poor duck has hill bill blown off. Daffy's final line to Bugs sums it up best: "You're despicable!"

Overall, an excellent episode. It can be seen on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume three DVD.
