Elmer is so fed up with chasing and never catching Bugs that he quits cartoons. He rips up his contract and makes sure “Mr. Warner” knows that he’s quitting.

Bugs and Elmer appear as “Rabbit and Costello” in a deranged escapade, including a spoof on Dumbo’s “Pink Elephants on Parade” sequence. Elmer appears in drag: “Have any of you girls ever had an experience like this?”

A Corny Concerto (1943) – Merrie Melodies Theatrical Cartoon Series

At Corny-Gie Hall, Elmer (as Deems Taylor) conducts two cartoons set to music.

The second piece, “The Blue Danube,” is a spoof of “The Ugly Duckling,” with a baby black duck- not unlike a juvenile Daffy- saving the day when the swans are threatened by a goofy buzzard.
