All this and Rabbit Stew

This are hollywood and Disney's roots...

Released to theatres on September 20, 1941 by Warner Bros. Pictures
All This and Rabbit Stew features Bugs Bunny being hunted by a slow-witted Black hunter
The cartoon's central gag sequence, involving the hunter constantly ending up on the wrong side of a rolling log hanging over a cliff, was repurposed for Bob Clampett's 1946 Looney Tunes short The Big Snooze. For that film, the animation of the Black hunter was redrawn into animation of Elmer Fudd.
Due to the film's racial stereotyping, All This and Rabbit Stew has not been seen on television since 1968, and is one of the "Censored Eleven" group of banned Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies shorts.
