Directed by Robert Clampett
Featuring the voices of Mel Blanc and Arthur Q. Bryan
Country: USA
What it is: Bugs and Elmer through the years

Elmer pleads with God to find out when he’s finally going to catch that wabbit, and is catapulted 56 years into the future to see his fate.

Seeing how this cartoon features a vocal appearance by a Supreme Being and takes us into the future (in which Elmer wields a futuristic firearm), this is one cartoon that doesn’t stint on the fantastic content. Furthermore, we not only get to see Bugs and Elmer tussle with each other as old codgers, we also flash back to their youths when they tussled with each other as babies. It’s a solid Bugs/Elmer cartoon with the usual gags, and has an amusing final twist at the end. I’m still waiting for the creation of smellevision.
