An exceedingly mild-mannered man is sent out to kill a duck for dinner by his wife. Unfortunately for him, he picks Daffy Duck as his victim. The two face off and do battle for the remainder of the cartoon.
Bugs challenges Cecil Turtle to race, only this time he's wearing an aerodynamic suit like Cecil's. Unfortunately, the gambling ring has bet everything on the rabbit, and Bugs now looks like a tortoise.
Daffy challenges duckhunter Elmer to a boxing match, rigged in his favor with the collusion of the duck referee. In the stands, Elmer's dog Larrimore suspects that something funny is going ... See full summary »
Hollywood; Oscar night. After a live-action introduction establishing these points, Bugs Bunny says hi and begins blatantly lobbying for the Oscar that goes instead to James Cagney. Miffed, Bugs shows the audience a clip from Hiawatha's Rabbit Hunt (1941), and the crowd gives it to him but not the Oscar.Written by

Well, I loved it
Whether What's Cookin' Doc? is one of Bugs Bunny's best cartoons overall I am not sure. But for me it was an interesting and hilarious one. I personally didn't see anything that offensive in the Hiawatha clip shown or in the overall cartoon(the portrayal of Indians was stereotypical but in my mind it wasn't racist), then again there have been times where it was probably back then but is actually not that bad now, and that was the case for me with What's Cookin' Doc. Not to mention there have been far more blatant cases of this in animation. The animation is beautifully done, it is very colourful and detailed and Bugs is drawn brilliantly. The music is full of energy, as is the pacing. The dialogue is deliciously witty especially with Bugs' mocking, which is unrelenting but funny and somewhat true, and the gags and caricatures(Carmen Miranda is always fun to spot) are imaginative. Bugs is spot on being arrogant and intelligent(one of the cartoon's funniest moments was his scream), and Mel Blanc's vocals superlative. In conclusion, I loved What's Cookin' Doc. 9/10 Bethany Cox
