Bugs Bunny ft. Elmer Fudd - The Wabbit Who Came to Supper (1942) Classic Animated Cartoon

The Wabbit Who Came to Supper is a 1942 American Warner Brothers Merrie Melodies cartoon featuring early appearances by Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd. The Elmer charer is in a transitional state from his earliest appearances in Bob Clampetts shorts and the appearance which he adopted around 1943.\r
This short is one of several pre-August 1948 WB cartoon shorts that lapsed into the public domain due to United Artists failing to renew the copyright in time.\r
The title of the short is a reference to the 1942 Warner Brothers film version of the 1939 George S. Kaufman Broadway comedy The Man Who Came to Dinner, in which an overbearing house-guest threatens to take over the lives of a small-town family.\r
As Elmer has Bugs Bunny cornered on his hunting trip, Elmer receives a telegram from his uncle Louie who leaves him $3 million in his will, as long as he doesnt harm any animals, especially rabbits. Elmer changes his tune to one of unchareristic niceness and lets Bugs free.\r
Bugs, with chareristic élan, takes full advantage of the situation by sneaking into Elmers house (already shown to be that of at least an upper middle class person) while Elmer is gone and making himself at home. As Elmer returns, he hears Bugs singing Angel in Disguise, while taking a shower and later shaving; Bugs uses the opportunity to purposely aggravate Elmer, knowing that he has Uncle Louie as blackmail and because of this Elmer cannot effectively punish Bugs in any way at the risk of losing his inheritance.\r
Elmer tries to coax Bugs into leaving, gently patting him on the head, which Bugs claims is hurting him and threatens to call Uncle Louie. Elmer apologizes to Bugs then tricks him into walking out of the house. Bugs resorts to faking a serious illness (with a level of melodrama that, in a moment of breaking the fourth wall, Bugs is convinced will garner him an Oscar) prompting Elmer to take him back in.\r
Later a special delivery letter arrives for Elmer, which informs him that Uncle Louie has died and that he now inherits the $3 million. However, the amount of the various estate taxes, including a $2 million inheritance tax, claims the entirety of the inheritance and leaves Elmer owing Louies lawyer $1.98. Furious at Bugs torment and intrusion for all that, Elmer, at his wits end, is free to vent his anger on Bugs and chases him round the house until Bugs escapes out the front door. Elmer then receives a large Easter egg delivery. Upon opening it, an impossibly large litter of baby Bugs Bunnies who say Eh, whats up Doc? in unison, begin to leap around the house.
