Saturday Morning Cartoonery: Baton Bunny (1959)

"Baton Bunny" (1959), directed by Chuck Jones and Abe Levitow. Mel Blanc is credited with voices, but the only vocal effect is a cough from the audience. This is the only Bugs Bunny cartoon where Bugs is entirely silent. And even being entirely silent and having nothing to hand but musical instruments, Bugs still manages to work in violence and cultural stereotypes there towards the end.
