Bugs Bunny Controversy The last line of the 1954 Bugs Bunny cartoon Bewitched Bunny upset the politically correct crowd in the 1980s. In the final scene Bugs' nemesis, Witch Hazel, is transformed into a beautiful female rabbit through magic but retains her witchy cackle. As Bugs walks off with her he comments, 'Sure, I know, but aren't they all witches inside?' In Canada, censors declared the offhand remark to be misogynistic. In some DVD releases the last line has been changed to, 'Sure, I know, but who wants to be alone on Halloween?'

It's a shame that all the fun has to be taken away.

You can't mess with Bugs! Come on,those are the best cartoons ever. Mel Blanc, Carl Stalling. Milt Franklin. Those guys made it real. Those cartoons will be forever etched in my mind. Saturday mornings. YUP!

These Warner Bros. cartoons are classic films. Accordingly they should be seen as they were meant to be seen. Editing them, especially for reasons of political correctness, is akin to artistic desecration.

A pox on all those do-gooders who are always trying to 'protect' us with their twisted sense of values.

I second that Lava! Ya gotta tell me what A pox is. There never will ever be cartoons like the Classic Bugs,Road Runner,Daffy Duck,Fog Horn Leg Horn, Porky Pig, Sylvester,Tweety, Tazmanian Devil Dog,Chicken Hawk,Mrs Prissy and the rest Lol!, All the voices done by the late Great Mel Blanc!

Marty,
A pox is like placing a curse on somebody or someone.

Eric's definition is correct. In the olden days, people would wish for poxes to infect their enemies. Literally it meant a disease, like smallpox. Today it just means a general curse.

By the way, along with Mel Blanc's great voices, some of the Warner Bros. cartoon's female voices were done by Bea Benaderet of Petticoat Junction fame. She did the voice of Witch Hazel in this 'censored' cartoon. She was also the original voice of Betty Rubble.

Thanks Eric and Lava. Appreciate the info. And Lava, Bea or Betty Rubble doing Witch Hazel now that was cool to know. Is there any others that you know did other voices in some other of there numerous cartoons over the years? Great Info Thanks!
