From TibbyH :

The racist gags in this short aren't really funny (they're kinda despicable). But this cartoon is so wonderful, that I can look past the outdated racial stereotypes. Chuck's great posing and his brilliant team of animators elevate this into a Bugs classic. The passing is impeccable, each gag never overstays its welcome (even the racy ones). If you can't tell, I think this cartoon is a gem. A gem with a bit of dirt, but still a gem.
