Elmer is a dimwitted hunter who's "wooking for wabbits." Bugs proceeds to confuse, bamboozle, and otherwise humiliate the poor simp.
The producers' reaction to the gag of Bugs responding to a hunter pointing a gun at him with a confident casual remark, "What's up, Doc?" was so favorable that they decided to make that a standard element of future films featuring the character.
Be vewy, vewy qwiet. I'm hunting wabbits.
In the 1944 Blue Ribbon reissue of this cartoon, when the WB shield zooms in the copyright notice briefly says MCMXLIV(1944) for a fraction of a second before changing to MCMXL(1940)!
When the cartoon was re-released as a Blue Ribbon re-issue, it was inadvertently retitled "The Wild Hare." Also, one of the names Elmer Fudd guesses was changed from Carole Lombard, who had recently died in a plane crash, to Barbara Stanwyck.
