'Toons:

Bugs Bunny tricks Yosemite Sam into diving from a high tower repeatedly – but Sam deserves it as he wanted the bunny to do it!

In 17th Century England. Sam, Duke of Yosemite, finds out that his uncle, the King, has decided to cut off his allowance. Bugs Bunny comes to his door offering one million pounds – if Sam can keep his temper!

Summary (includes spoilers) Bugs is riding in the mail car of a train, singing a goofy song, when a pint-sized bandit attempts to rob the train, only to have it pass clear over his head. He calls for his horse, but he needs a rolling step-stair to mount. He catches up and boards the train […]

Yosemite Sam takes on Bugs Bunny in the warm waters of the 16th century Caribbean. Sam is a pirate and Bugs is, well, just Bugs – causing mayhem for anyone who crosses him.
