Bugs and Thugs

Sophisticated, urbane Bugs Bunny calls a cab that he doesn’t realize is actually the getaway vehicle for the notorious Mugsy and Bugsy. Bugs accidentally gets into the car driven by the pair after a bank robbery. They “take him for a ride” (Warner Bros. seems to have loved that line) because he knows too much, and it’s up to Bugs to find a way to survive! They kidnap him and bring him to their hideout, where he proceeds to pulverize them with all sorts of great attacks based on their stupidity. There’s a great ending with the stove: “Would I throw a lit match if my friend Rocky was in there?”, asks Bugs. Mwaaa, could be!
