The Hare-Brained Hyp­no­tist (1942) — Mer­rie Melodies The­atri­cal Car­toon Series

Elmer walks in the woods read­ing a book called “Stalk­ing Wild Game.” A bear knocks him down. Elmer hyp­no­tizes it, con­vinc­ing the bear that it’s a canary, and the bear flies away.

He then meets Bugs, and starts try­ing to hyp­no­tize him. Bugs gives Elmer a bal­loon which car­ries him into the sky (past the canary-bear), and then offers to catch Elmer when he falls– in a bas­ket which turns out to be bottomless.

Elmer chases Bugs to his hole. They have a tug-of-war with the rifle. Elmer starts to cry, “How can I hyp­no­tize you when you won’t coop­er­ate?!” Bugs agrees to be a sport and hyp­no­tizes Elmer into think­ing that he’s a rab­bit. Elmer starts act­ing wacky and resumes the rifle tug-of-war. Bugs says, “Hey, who’s the come­dian in this picture?”

They then have a hyp­no­tism bat­tle. Elmer scam­pers away. Bugs takes off, say­ing, “Sorry, I’m due at the air­port, I’m a B-19!”
