Oh, I do remember that cartoon..doesn’t Bugs impresonate Lee at the end? Nowadays you can’t show that because Bugs does a mean Minstral impression..Someone will forget it’s a cartoon and get their knickers in a twist.
I must admit, the earthen fort, the red clay, the beautiful landscape against the barren “north wasteland” the Stephen Foster music, cornpone, the dialect of Bugs in multiple locations- they researched it well if there weren’t artists who had ties to Dixie.
You couldn't do that one today! Remember the Three Stooges did a couple of CW short films. The Little Rascals did GENERAL SPANKY and there was a CW Laurel & Hardy cartoon. I never saw Red Skelton's A SOUTHERN YANKEE but it was probably a hoot!
I remember seeing this cartoon many years ago along with those WWII era Bugs Bunny cartoons with the caricature Japanese soldiers. Those will probably be seen on TV again. The same for Heckle and Jeckle, which I loved as a kid.
