Cartoon Summary:


While digging a tunnel heading for Miami Beach, Bugs somehow ends up in the Sahara Desert. He trudges through the desert and sees a mirage. He dives in the mirage and takes a bath.

After getting "footy prints" all over the Sahara, he meets up with bed-sheeted bandit "Sheik Riff Raff Sam" (played by Yosemite Sam, of course), who rides through the desert on his misguided, humpbacked camel. Sam, with towel-dispensing headdress, runs Bugs down. Bugs is drying his eyes and uses Sam's headdress as a towel. Sam stops his camel from charging by hitting him over the head, thus giving him another hump. He also tells the animal, "Whoa, mule, whoa, mule!" Sam chases Bugs into a nearby deserted Foreign Legion fortress, battling Bugs in an unsuccessful attempt to get in (Bugs locks him out).

Sam tries to get an elephant to charge the door. Bugs releases a mouse, and the elephant flees. Sam tries to enter by pole vaulting, chiseling out one of the blocks, and trying to approach the fort with stilts (he smacks into a rock wall). Sam makes a giant slingshot using two trees and a rubber band; it throws him into a big tree. He finds a secret (labeled!) entrance and opens one door after the other till the last one, which is connected to explosives. Daffy Duck shows up at the very end.

Special memories when my father would sit us kids to watch and we all would crack up at the famous scene-- "whoa camel! whoa" and "you doggone idgit!" After 25 years, I saw a re-run of this episode and I still crack up at the same scenes!...  (read more)
