Storyline

Parody of "This is Your Life," with Elmer Fudd as the host and Bugs Bunny as the guest of honor, much to the disgust of Daffy Duck. On several occassions, Granny has to whack Daffy over the head to get him to be quiet. Meanwhile, Bugs reminisces with Elmer and Yosemite Sam about their previous encounters (reviewed via footage from past Bugs Bunny cartoons). Elmer and Sam plan to present Bugs with a special gift (a time bomb) in appreciation of their "friendship," but Daffy (still believing he was meant to be the guest) grabs the gift and takes the resulting explosion.

Trivia

The music that plays when Bugs laughs about the time he blew up Sam in the powder magazine and when he puts eels in his bed is an original composition by Milt Franklyn. It was later re-used at the end of Mixed Master (1956). See more »

Goofs

Just after Bugs is laughing about the things he did to Yosemite Sam, Sam and Elmer put a bomb in a box and light the fuse, then they give the box to Bugs. When Bugs shakes the box and listens he hears ticking.....so it went from a fuse bomb to a time bomb. See more »

Enjoyable parody of "This is Your Life," which was a TV show in the 1950s that had celebrity guests who were given a walk down memory lane in front of a live studio audience. The guest here is Bugs Bunny, with Elmer as the host of the program. A disgruntled Daffy sits in the audience stewing over his not being the guest of honor. Sitting beside him is Granny, who doesn't hesitate to show her displeasure at Daffy's interruptions. Nice to see some rare Granny and Daffy interaction. We get some brief clips from past cartoons and then the short ends with a predictable but funny gag involving a bomb. This isn't likely to top anybody's "best of" lists for Looney Tunes cartoons but it's entertaining and fun.
