Ballot Box Bunny

Synopsis: Yosemite Sam is running for mayor, and one of his campaign promises is to get rid of all the rabbits. When Bugs runs against him as the "pro-bunny" candidate, Yosemite uses a number of elaborate stunts to eliminate his opponent (which all backfire). In the end, they're defeated by a dark horse candidate (an actual dark horse!).
Director(s): Friz Freleng

Get on the Bugs Bunny bandwagon.

From the rock-bound coast of Maine...

to the smoggy shores of CaIifornia...

That is a Iong waIk.
