Friz Freleng (1942)

The Wabbit Who Came to Supper is a 1942 Merrie Melodies cartoon featuring Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd. It was released on March 28, 1942 and directed by Friz Freleng. Elmer Fudd and his dogs are hunting for Bugs Bunny in the woods. As Fudd is about to shoot Bugs, he receives a telegram telling him that his uncle is leaving him three million dollars on the condition he doesn’t harm any animals. The title is a reference to the 1942 Warner Brothers film version of the 1939 George S. Kaufman Broadway comedy The Man Who Came to Dinner, in which an overbearing house-guest threatens to take over the lives of a small-town family.
