Hare Do - 1949
Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd
Directed by Friz Freleng - Story by Tedd Pierce - Animation by Ken Champin, Virgil Ross, Gerry Chiniquy, and Manuel Perez - Layouts by Hawley Pratt - Backgrounds by Paul Julian - Voice Characterization by Mel Blanc - Musical Direction by Carl Stalling
As in Stage Door Cartoon, Elmer Fudd chases Bugs from the woods into the city and into a theater, where a series of theater gags ensue.
Bugs hails a passing car to take him from the forest into the city. As he relaxes, he says, "You gotta get up early in the morning to outsmart this rabbit." Elmer, who we find is driving the car, turns around and says, "I got up at qwarter to five." Bugs' surprised reaction is priceless: he's not used to being outwitted.
