Easter Yeggs (1947) — Looney Tunes The­atri­cal Car­toon Series

As Bugs Bunny reads a book on “How to Mul­ti­ply,” he is inter­rupted by a cry­ing Easter Bunny who com­plains of sore feet. Bugs vol­un­teers, “I’ll deliver the Tech­ni­color hen fruit for ya!” Reminded to “keep smil­ing,” Bugs sings a gooney song, “I’m the Easter Rab­bit, Hooray.”

His first stop is a mean lit­tle kid (so mean that, in one scene, he clicks off a gun in his mouth) who heck­les the hare by chant­ing, “I Wanna Easter Egg, I Wanna Easter Egg.” Return­ing, Bugs is goaded by the Easter Bunny into one more try.

This time, Bugs is greeted by ban­ners and posters wel­com­ing the Easter Bunny. It’s the home of Elmer Fudd, who is hun­gry for “Easter wab­bit stew.” Elmer is dis­guised as a baby, but Bugs is sus­pi­cious. Bugs smashes an egg in Elmer’s hand and takes off. Elmer ambushes Bugs: “I can’t miss with my Dick Twacy hat!” The trap sends Bugs and Elmer through a Tun­nel of Love. Bugs per­forms a magic trick which destroys Elmer’s pocket watch. Fudd gets his gun and chases Bugs. The Easter Bunny puts up a rope to stop Bugs. In a daze, Bugs returns and man­ages to paint Elmer’s head like an Easter egg for the mean lit­tle kid to pound with his ham­mer. Bugs takes care of the Easter Bunny by light­ing a fuse on an explo­sive egg. Bugs reminds the Easter Bunny: “Keep smiling.”
