Looney TV: Rabbit Punch (1948)

Bugs Bunny, taking umbrage at a 1-sided boxing match involving Battling McGook (later rebooted as the Crusher, voiced by Billy Bletcher), ends up in the ring with McGook. Chaos ensues in "Rabbit Punch".

The ending is a cop-out so Bugs can save face, if you will, but this farce was spiraling out of control by that point. I wonder if this wasn't part of the inspiration for how today's pro wrestling is presented.

Rating: B.
