The voice of Elmer Fudd--performed by Arthur Q. Bryan--is heard only twice in the film: his painful reactions when Bugs Bunny "shaves" him, and when he sings "Oh, wait 'til I get that wabbit!" afterwards. Bryan was a fine singer but rarely got to display this talent playing Fudd in the Warner Bros. cartoons. What's Opera, Doc? (1957) was a memorable exception.
How do?/Welcome to my shop/Let me cut your mop/Let me shave your crop/Daintily, daintily... Hey, you!/Don't look so perplexed/Why must you be vexed?/Can't you see you're next?/Yes, you're next, you're so next!
When Bugs Bunny carries Elmer into the shaving room, Elmer's hat, and Bugs' black comb drop to the floor together. After Elmer's shave, Elmer runs outside and picks up his shotgun from beside his hat, which was not there previously, and has replaced the black comb, which has vanished. Elmer's shotgun disappeared when Bugs startled him while Elmer was trying to sneak out.
On ABC, some of Elmer's gunshots were deleted. Possible editing was also done to reduce the depicted violence in the scene of Bugs slashing Elmer's face with a razor.
