Bully For Bugs (1953) — Looney Tunes The­atri­cal Car­toon Series

Before we encounter Bugs, we get an eye­ful of a mag­nif­i­cent bull in action as he makes short work of a mata­dor. Look­ing for the “Coachella Val­ley and Car­rot Fes­ti­val therein” (that left turn at Albu­querque again), Bugs tun­nels into the mid­dle of the arena.

Bugs becomes hos­tile when the bull’s breath steams up his tail, and the bull bops him high into the air. The bunny utters his famous dec­la­ra­tion, “Of course you real­ize this means war!” and steps back into the arena in full tore­ador cos­tume, direct­ing the bull head-first into an anvil with his red cape, then doing a show-stopping dance (to “La Cucaracha”) with the now slap-happy bull. Another bit of chore­og­ra­phy fol­lows, this one set to the Mex­i­can Hat Dance and employ­ing as its theme Bugs walk­ing right up to the behe­moth and slap­ping him repeat­edly in the face– in tempo!

Next, Bugs booby-traps his cape with a rifle, which the bull acci­den­tally swal­lows, enabling him to fire bul­lets out of his horns. How­ever, he abuses the priv­i­lege by try­ing explosive-headed bul­lets. Bugs then sends the bull out of the sta­dium. By the time he returns, Bugs has arranged for his defeat with a Rube Gold­berg rou­tine which sets off a pow­der keg just as the bull flies over it. This heads the bull straight into the side of the arena. Over the bull’s bat­tered back­side, Bugs dis­plays a ban­ner read­ing “The End.”
