    Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam

    November 12, 1955

    When in Rome, in 54 A.D., Sam must do as the Romans do and find a victim to throw to the lions. He ends up chasing Bugs Bunny in and out of the lions' cages.
Best Bits:
    The constant references to baseball. The sign outside the arena that reads "Detroit Lions - Season Opener". The announcement at the beginning of the event: "Governor Nero has kindly consented to throw out the first victim."
