Powder Gag

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    Gag used twice by Freleng in the shipboard confrontations between Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny. The gag involves Bugs tossing matches into the powder hold, making Yosemite Sam fetch them initially, and then causing an explosion when Sam refuses to get the match one last time, though Sam usually relents at the last minute and attempts to get it. Seen in Buccaneer Bunny (1948) and Captain Hareblower (1954).
