William Shakespeare searches for inspiration amid Bugs' and Witch Hazel's wacky dialogue as they battle it out in the castle of Macbeth. But Willy the Shake turns out in reality to be mild-mannered Sam Krubish.
The cartoon ends with Witch Hazel and Sam Krubish arguing over whether Hazel gave Sam the right apartment number when he came to visit her. The last line belongs to Bugs: "2B or not 2B? That is the question."
