Episode Recap

Bugs Bunny introduces the show in this episode and how it was created. An animator is in danger of losing his job if he doesn't come up with a hit show by the following morning. Bugs tells him that he should use rabbits, so he creates Buster and Babs Bunny. The animator loses hope in creating a new show and crumbles them up and leaves. It's up to them to created the show themselves by selecting a locale to call their own home, thus creating Acme Acres. Then they select sidekicks and friends in Hamton Pig and Plucky Duck, and Gogo Dodo who they promptly send to Wackyland. Then they unleash their enemies whom you will see in future episodes and the infamous Montana Max, the character that the animator promised the new show to but was rejected. As soon as they have all of their enemies, they write up stories and scripts for the show. Max comes up and steals the scripts from the bunnies and tosses them out of Acme Acres. Seeing Buster and Babs give up, Bugs comes and paints the famous Acme Looniversity, where the characters will get cartoon knowledge from past Warner Bros. cartoon stars as their teachers. Bug also tells them that Max is a typical enemy who always fall for disguises, so Buster and Babs disguise themselves as Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam to get the scripts back from Max. When Max sees through their disguises, a typical chase scene ensues with Buster and Babs coming through at the end. Not only did they save their show, but they saved the animator's job, too. When they ask for a "Created by" credit, the animator says "Sure, in your dreams, pal!" They attack the animator as the episode ends.
