Storyline

Yosemite Sam is running for mayor, and one of his campaign promises is to get rid of all the rabbits. When Bugs runs against him as the "pro-bunny" candidate, Yosemite uses a number of elaborate stunts to eliminate his opponent (which all backfire). In the end, they're defeated by a dark horse candidate (an actual dark horse!). Written by Mike Konczewski

The town's statue has a plague that reads "Pro Patria 1865: Batchelder, Champin, Farren, Julian, Nicholson, Perez, Pratt, Ross". This is a list of the crew that worked on the cartoon, including a presumed reference to an uncredited Warren Batchelder as well as references to Ken Champin, Paul Julian, Manuel Perez, Hawley Pratt and Virgil Ross. Many of the shop names are also references to crew members, with Ross & Co, Frizby, M. Perez and P. Julian Yard Tools being named after Virgil Ross, Friz Freleng, Manuel Perez and Paul Julian respectively. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Yosemite Sam: As I stand on this platform, I stand for union - Union suits and Union stations! For the little people. There's enough fresh air and sunshine in this great country of ours for everybody, and I'll see to it that you'll get your share!

Mayor vs Mayor

Bugs and Yosemite Sam are at their best in this brilliant cartoon which sees them fighting each other over the Mayor elections in a country town. Sam has vowed to wipe out all rabbits from the town and naturally Bugs is upset.

The usual tricks and hijinks follow. But what makes them different this time is that instead of Bugs duping Sam into stupidity, Sam plays many nasty tricks on Bugs. But the bunny is so smart and so many steps ahead that he manages to reverse each and every trick back onto Sam. The comic timing is just perfect.

In the end none of them win. A mare becomes mayor. Trust me it makes sense.
