Another ubiquitous public-domain Warner's toon you've seen a million times. This is the one where Bugs is tormented by a gremlin at an air base and takes a wild ride in a plane with the little monster. We all remember how it ends: "Sorry, folks, we ran out of gas!", but can you think of a better ending for this kind of toon? Personally, I prefer seeing Bugs doing the tormenting, rather than being the victim, like in this toon. But he does pull the exact same gags on Yosemite Sam in a later cartoon.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: ***.
