Cartoon Production Information:

Despite the strong racial overtones of the film, this was never included in the notorious Warner Bros. "Censored Eleven" cartoons. In fact, it was even shown on television and released on laser disk. When the laser disk release was reformatted to a video release, the short caught the ire of many Japanese rights groups. Not long after the initial release of the 10-video set, this short was pulled from the video release of the Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies anthology tapes "The Golden Age Of Looney Tunes" Volume 1. (It was replaced with Racketeer Rabbit.)

Contains animation (themes, sequences or characters) which modern audiences may consider derogatory toward certain ethnic or religious groups.

Songs include: "Someone's Rockin' My Dreamboat" (Otis Rene-Emerson Scott-Leon Rene), Performed by Bugs Bunny.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

Racism at it's worst


Comments By:
Anybody who finds this cartoon to be anything other than wrong and offensive is a racist and xenophobic loser. I don't find anything funny about how the Japanese were treated. I regret finding this cartoon through the Wikipedia pages link that was provided...  (read more)

Loved this cartoon


Comments By:
I had never seen this cartoon before. In fact, I had never heard about it before today when I was going through the list of WB cartoons to see what I was missing in my collection. I thought I had seen all of the old cartoons but never this one. While I realize...  (read more)

Bugs Bunny Nips The Nips


Comments By:
I love this cartoon for the amazing "takes" (the stretched frames that create the feeling of rapid motion) used to liven up the sumo wrestler. Bug's geisha character is priceless as well, proving that only Bugs has the "hare" to...  (read more)
