Bugs BunnyEdit

  • Brother. What a Leonardo da Punchy. What a Too-Lousy Lautrec.
  • What's the first thing on the agend... [notices the animator has drawn a huge hat on him] You know I'm not supposed to wear a hat!
  • [the horse is erased, and Bugs is redrawn in an abstract style with big cheeks and huge feet] All right, okay. That's better. [looking down at himself] Holy codfish, look at my feet! Hmph! Continue to draw me like this, buddy, and we'll both be outta work!
  • [Bugs' head is erased, and when he demands it be drawn back, the animator paints a pumpkin head on him] Okay, buddy, you've had your fun. Now what about a rabbit's head? [the animator just draws rabbit ears on him] Alright, you comic book Rembrandt, make with the eraser!


Bugs Bunny: [notices his ears are missing] Ears!
[The animator draws on a pair of human ears; Bugs feels the lobes with his finger]
Bugs Bunny: Not human ears, my friend - rabbit ears. Long ones.
[The animator erases the human ears and draws on long rabbit ears that trail along the ground]
Bugs Bunny: Don't be so dang literal!

[last lines.]
Bugs Bunny: Well, okay. But there's still one way out, and you can't stop me!
[Bugs pulls out a "The End" title card. This short was inspired by Duck Amuck. As it turns out, that the animator tormenting Bugs throughout the cartoon was Elmer Fudd, the whole time]
Elmer Fudd: Well, anyway, I finally got even with that scwewy wabbit!
