Bugs Bunny

  • [seeing Finster for the first time] Eh, what's up, uh, pediatrician?


Bugs Bunny: Finster shaving at his age? And tattooed? And smoking a cigar?
Man on TV: Have you seen this man? He is Ant Hill Harry, alias Baby-Face Finster. Notorious bank robber believed to have perpetrated the daring Last National Bank holdup this morning. He is 35 years old, stands...
[Bugs turns off the TV, then gets a suspicious look on his face]
Bugs Bunny: [in a sing-song voice] Oh, Finster! Oh, Finster Baby! [sees Finster trying to get the bag of money from the shelf] Oh. There you are, you naughty baby! [grabs Finster and shakes him rapidly] How many times have I told you not to play with that dirty money?! We'll just have to get hims all tidied up. [puts Finster in the washing machine, then, he takes him out] There, nice enough to be kissed. Ah, whoops, the baby! [tosses Finster to the ceiling] Oh, dear! I do believe I've forgotten my fudge. [Finster crashes down to the ground] Aw, sakes alive. Did'ims fall down?
Finster: [tries to stab Bugs with a knife, but, accidentally stabs himself in the rear end] YEOW!!!! [murmurs obscenities]
Bugs Bunny: [finally having enough, he spanks Finster and some weapons fall out] We'll just have to learn not to play with knives and not to use naughty words! And believe me, Finster, this hurts you more than it does me!
