Rabbit Fire is a 1951 Looney Tunes cartoon starring Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Elmer Fudd. Directed by Chuck Jones and written by Michael Maltese, the short is the first film in Jones' "hunting trilogy"—the other two films being Rabbit Seasoning and Duck! Rabbit, Duck! It is also the first film to feature a feud between Bugs and Daffy. In the short, Daffy Duck and Bugs argue back and forth whether it is duck season or rabbit season. The object of their arguments is hunter Elmer Fudd.

This cartoon was featured in The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie.

Elmer Fudd: It's not?
Bugs Bunny: No, it's duck hunting season.

Bugs Bunny: Duck season.
Daffy Duck: Rabbit season!
Bugs Bunny: Duck season.
Daffy Duck: Rabbit season!

Daffy Duck: I say it's duck season. And I say fire!
[Elmer shoots Daffy]

[Bugs and Daffy are trying to convince Elmer to shoot the other and make a meal out of him]
Elmer Fudd: I'm sorry fellas, but I'm a vegetarian. I just hunt for the sport of it. Ha ha ha ha ha.
Bugs Bunny: Oh yeah! Well there's other sports besides hunting, you know!
Daffy Duck: [Daffy appears in a tennis outfit] Anyone for tennis? [Elmer shoots Daffy] Nice game.

Daffy: [disguised as Bugs] Eh, what's up, doc? Having any luck on those ducks? It's duck season, you know.
Bugs: [disguised as Daffy] Just a darn minute. Where do you get that duck season stuff?
Daffy: Says so right over there on that sign, if you're so smart.
[the sign reads "rabbit season"]
Daffy: You know what to do with that gun, doc.
[Elmer shoots Daffy]
Daffy: [to Bugs] You're despicable!

Elmer: Hey! What's the big idea? Why don't you look where you're... [doesn't get to finish]
Bugs: [dressed as a lady] Oh, how simply dreadful. You poor little man. Did I hurt you with my naughty gun.

Daffy: Rabbit season.
Bugs: Duck season.
Daffy: Rabbit season.
Bugs: Duck season!
Daffy: RABBIT SEASON!!
Bugs: DUCK SEASON!!!!!
[the last poster reads "Elmer Season", where the tables are turned]
