Making A Fool Of Elmer In Public
A takeoff on "Stage Door Canteen," this begins out in the wilds with the typical Bugs Bunny- making hunter Elmer Fudd-into an idiot routine. Finally, Elmer chases Bugs into the city and to a stage door of a vaudeville theater act that is going on.
To avoid being shot by Elmer, Bugs comes out on stage and tap dances. Each time he wants to get off stage, Elmer is there so Bugs has to keep dancing, and then play the piano since he sees Elmer inside with the shotgun pointed at him.
The real laughs of this cartoon start from that point as Bugs turns the tables on Elmer and makes a fool of him in front of the audience. He even cons the dumb Fudd into doing a striptease and then getting arrested. The surprise ending was good, one that fooled a lot of people, I'm sure. Bugs was one clever dude.
This can be seen as part of Volume Two of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection.
