Yosemite Sam from Outer Space comes to Earth to bring back an Earth creature (Bugs Bunny that is). However, all of Yosemite Sam's robots fail to do the work. Bugs mistakes one for a garbage can and puts garbage in it, and three others are unable to nab Bugs. Not even a personal one that meets a robot that Bugs Bunny made to dispose of it!

Did You Know?


Mel Blanc spoke with his "Marvin, the Martian" voice, as Yosemite Sam of Outer Space's robot & mechanical ferret, just before Bugs disguised a mechanical robot, with a rabbit disguise then claiming to surrender. As the cartoon concludes, the mechanical robot, disguised as a rabbit in a cloth suit, exploded on Yosemite Sam from Outer Space's home planet & to his president, commander or leader. See more »

"Gee, I wonder if Amos & Andy is on yet?"
8 October 2015 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Silly Bugs Bunny short from Friz Freleng that has Yosemite Sam as an alien invader who comes to Earth in his flying saucer. Sam instructs his robots to bring him Bugs, which goes about as well as you might expect. Not bad for a later Looney Tunes short but far from one of the best. The animation is decent for the period and the colors are nice. What was with so much brown, though? Whimsical music from Milt Franklyn. Great voice work from the incomparable Mel Blanc. Sam's fun as usual. His robots are the best part of the cartoon, including one he refers to as "the most stupidest robot I've got." It's an entertaining cartoon, if not particularly impressive.
