• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

File:Rabbit Seasoning 1541.jpg

"I would just love a duck dinner."

"Awfully unsporting of me, I know, but, what the hey, I gotta have SOME fun!"
Daffy Duck in the opening

"Rabbit Seasoning", voted no. 30 on The 50 Greatest Cartoons list, was a 1952 Looney Tunes short, the second in a trilogy of Bugs-Daffy-Elmer cartoons known as the "hunting trilogy," the others being "Rabbit Fire" (1951) and "Duck! Rabbit! Duck!" (1953). The short revolves around another Bugs, Daffy, and Elmer team-up in which Daffy is trying to save his skin again — only to be foiled by Elmer's typical incompetence again and again.

This short is also part of The 100 Greatest Looney Tunes list.

Tropes Used In This Short


 Bugs: I know, you go up and act as a decoy and lure 'im away.

Daffy: No more for me thanks, I'm driving!

  • Parental Bonus: Daffy after he gets shot yet again by Elmer: "No more for me, thanks! I'm drivin'!"
  • Pronoun Trouble: Trope Namer
  • Running Gag: Daffy getting shot and his beak winding up in so many different positions.
  • Something Else Also Rises: Elmer's hat, when the crossdressed Bugs kisses him (also, the rifle going off as Elmer staggers away in post-kiss catatonia).
  • Screwy Squirrel: Daffy, though also out to save his own hide, admits to taking enjoyment out of sending Elmer on Bugs. He isn't quite as successful as he is usually however.
  • Smug Snake: Bugs is practically a non-villainous example of this. He's content to just sit back and let Daffy defeat himself, not even so much as flinching the constant smug look on his face when Daffy yells at him.
    • In which case, Bugs is arguably more a Guile Hero or a Magnificent Bastard (depending how sympathetically you view him) as, unlike a traditional Smug Snake, he is just that good (though can lean into one in other shorts). Daffy arguably plays it more straight. He is wilier than Elmer, but his ego insists on taking on the much more competant Bugs as well.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Elmer. He seems to have forgotten that Bugs himself is a wabbit.
    • And Daffy, despite his attempts at 'self preservation' he will chastise the gun wielding huntsman right to his face.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Bugs in one of his most famous moments.
