Victory Through Hare Power

In a frightening and foreboding episode of the famous cartoon, Bugs Bunny goes to a military base where he meets up with a mischievous gremlin who gets the better of him. Animation by Rod Scribner, music by Carl W. Stalling. Produced in 1943.

From Wikipedia: "Falling Hare" is a 1943 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Robert Clampett, starring Bugs Bunny. Within the cartoon are several contemporary pop culture references, including to Wendell Wilkie, John Steinbeck's novel Of Mice and Men and the folk songs "Yankee Doodle" and "I've Been Working on the Railroad". Bugs' Gremlin nemesis also makes a reapearance in the 1990 cartoon Tiny Toons episode Journy to the Center of Acme Acres with two look alikes as the secondary antagonists of the episode.

Just thought I'd say hi as I'm trying to visit and comment on as many of the NaBloPoMo blogs as I can. :)

The WWII cartoons are some of the both intriguing and somewhat creepy, but if you put it into the context of the time, it makes some sense why they did these cartoons.
