Chriminey! What's happening up there!?
Feature Logo
Bugs Bunny [Dell / Western Logo Rounded Letters]
Genre
anthropomorphic-funny animals; humor
Characters
Bugs Bunny; Elmer Fudd; Yosemite Sam
Synopsis
Sam takes up dirt-biking and is given permission to ride around the far side of Elmer's property. This suits Elmer doubly-fine as it is far enough away from his house so as not to be bothered by the noise, and Sam does his loud riding directly above Bugs' rabbit hole. When Elmer shows no interest in abating the noise for Bugs, the rabbit takes steps to bring the noise to Elmer.
Keywords
battle of wits; dirt-bike; need-for-peace-and-quiet; noise; rabbit hole
