At last, Bugs Bunny gets what he deserves!

I have never been a fan of Bugs Bunny and I doubt that I ever will be. But, at last, I've seen a cartoon where that big-headed rabbit finally get what's been coming to him!

I'm not an out-and-out fan of Cecil Turtle either, but at least he's smarter than Bugs, and what I enjoy the most about this is watching the rabbit stew!

CLAMPETT IS KING

By
Of the trilogy of Bugs vs. Cecil, this is by far the funniest. That is to be expected...since this is the one that Robert Clampett directed.

Full of signature Clampett madness and frenzy. I still bust a gut when Bugs shows up at Cecil's door disguised as an old man....for a split second, he removes the disguise for the audience, gesturing exaggeratedly as if we wouldn't recognize him without removing the disguise!!

"Take dat, ya doity toitle, take dat!"
"Yup, dats da toitle all right!"

Check out Mel Blanc's frenzied Bugs as he pulls ahead of Cecil.....and the ferocious beating he takes from the gambling ring ("We're bettin' evryting on da rabbit ta win....in FACT, we don't even think the toitle will finish, do we boys?") and Bugs' furious fit at being held off of the finish line.

Politically Correct note: The ending of this cartoon has been edited. One of the thugs pulls out a gun and the bullet goes through about half a dozen thug heads when they realize they prevented the Rabbit from winning ("Eh, now he tells us!")

Also, there are many other cartoons with similar P.C. edits: "An Itch in Time", "The Big Snooze" (where Bugs USED to swallow a bottle of sleeping pills to invade Elmer's dream, but the P.C. Police must have thought that little kiddies would be rushing to the medicine cabinet to grab mommy & daddy's pills to make like Bugs), and just about any time a character has something blow up in their face and when the smoke clears, they are in blackface. It's OK to leave in when Bugs does an exaggerated Italian, Swedish, etc accent but we mustn't offend other ethnic groups, must we?

Needless to say, this cartoon is still one of the very greatest....even with the edit!!
