A Wild Hare

Generally considered to be the very first Bugs Bunny cartoon. Elmer is - this may come as a shock - hunting wabbits - but gets more than he bargained for when he places a carrot by a rabbit hole prompting the now momentous emergence of a gloved hand, which turns out to be attached to a certain rabbit. What follows is a fairly predictable Warner predator versus prey story, though enlivined by the odd Tex Avery sight gag. Bugs looks conspicuously different and sounds very different to the rabbit we would come to know by the 50's, but there's no mistaking who we're looking at.
