The third in the trilogy which includes Rabbit Fire and Rabbit Seasoning, this cartoon takes place in the snow and featuring the greatest number of "seasons" on record: dirty skunk, pigeon, mongoose, and, of course, baseball.
Daffy finally loses it, and Elmer is terribly confused. Bugs Bunny comes out of his hole dressed as the game warden. Elmer implores him, "Can you tell us what season it wea-wee is?" Bugs' helpful answer: "Why soitenly, my boy. It's baseball season!" He tosses out a ball, which Elmer proceeds to fire at.
