->"Awfully unsporting of me, I know, but, what the hey, I gotta have SOME fun!"
-->--WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck in the opening[[hottip:*:"And besides, it's really ''duck'' season!"]]

'''"Rabbit Seasoning"''', voted no. 30 on ''The50GreatestCartoons'' list, was a [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1952]] ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short, the second in a trilogy of Bugs-Daffy-Elmer cartoons known as the "hunting trilogy," the others being "WesternAnimation/RabbitFire" (1951) and "Duck! Rabbit! Duck!" (1953). The short revolves around another Bugs, Daffy, and Elmer team-up in which Daffy is trying to save his skin again -- only to be foiled by Elmer's typical incompetence again and again.

This short is also part of ''The100GreatestLooneyTunes'' list.

!!Tropes Used In This Short

* AmusingInjuries: By this point, Daffy is mildly irritated at being shot by Elmer Fudd.
* AttractiveBentGender: Elmer falls for one of Bugs' female disguises once again.
* {{Bowdlerization}}: See the WesternAnimation/RabbitFire entry for information on what was edited from this cartoon.
* CasualDangerDialog: Bugs Bunny, as always.
* DuckSeasonRabbitSeason: "Would you like to shoot me now, or wait until you get home?"
* ElmuhFuddSyndwome
* HollywoodHealing: Though Daffy hardly seems injured by his shotgun blasts to the face anyway, all it seems to do is misplace his beak.
* IronButtmonkey: Daffy.
* MotiveDecay: Arguably by the very start of the short, Daffy has already succeeded in escaping Elmer, with him believing it is Rabbit Season and Bugs being more than willing to take on the hunter. Nevertheless he still breaks from his hiding spot and chastises Elmer for falling for Bugs' tricks. It's not enough to escape getting his head blown off, Bugs has to get blasted by Elmer in his place.
* NonSequiturThud: After getting a face full of shotgun, Daffy comes back down in the rabbit hole, and delivers this.
-->'''Bugs:''' I know, you go up and act as a decoy and lure 'im away.
-->'''Daffy:''' No more for me thanks, I'm driving!
* ParentalBonus: Daffy after he gets shot yet again by Elmer: "No more for me, thanks! I'm drivin'!"
* PronounTrouble: [[TropeNamers Trope Namer]].
* RunningGag: Daffy getting shot and his beak winding up in so many different positions.
* SomethingElseAlsoRises: Elmer's hat, when the crossdressed Bugs kisses him (also, the rifle going off as Elmer staggers away in [[PostKissCatatonia post-kiss catatonia]]).
* ScrewySquirrel: Daffy, though also out to save his own hide, admits to taking enjoyment out of sending Elmer on Bugs. He isn't ''quite'' as successful as he is usually however.
* SmugSnake: Bugs is practically a non-villainous example of this. He's content to just sit back and let Daffy defeat himself, not even so much as flinching the constant smug look on his face when Daffy yells at him.
** In which case, Bugs is arguably more a GuileHero or a MagnificentBastard (depending how sympathetically you view him) as, unlike a traditional SmugSnake, he is just ''that good'' (though can lean into one in other shorts). Daffy arguably plays it more straight. He is wilier than Elmer, but his ego insists on taking on the much more competant Bugs as well.
* TooDumbToLive: Elmer. He seems to have forgotten that Bugs himself is a wabbit.
** And Daffy, despite his attempts at 'self preservation' he will chastise the gun wielding huntsman ''right to his face''.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Bugs in one of his most famous moments.
