Bunny Hugged - 1951
Bugs Bunny and The Crusher
Directed by Chuck Jones - Story by Michael Maltese - Animation by Ken Harris, Phil Monroe, Ben Washam, and Lloyd Vaughan - Layouts by Peter Alvarado - Backgrounds by Philip DeGuard - Voice Characterization by Mel Blanc - Musical Direction by Carl Stalling
Rabbit Punch had Jones, Maltese, and Bugs take on boxing; this sequel has them try to out-cartoon the ludicrousness of real-life wrestling, with its slurry announcers and good guy/bad guy theatrics.
"Duh, I was just passin' by... duh..." Crusher, after slamming into a safe door.
