* SleazyPolitician: Sam is willing to use any trick in the book to beat defeat Bugs, no matter ''how'' violent and underhanded.

* SleazyPolitician: Sam is willing to use any trick in the book to beat defeat Bugs, no matter ''how'' violent and underhanded. And to be honest, Bugs is only a step or two behind him.

'''Ballot Box Bunny''' is a [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1951]] WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes cartoon directed by Creator/FrizFreleng and starring WesternAnimation/BugsBunny. In the short, Bugs throws himself into the race for small-town mayor after hearing that candidate Yosemite Sam's campaign platform includes a promise to wipe out every last rabbit. An escalating dirty-trick campaign ensues, along with [[HilarityEnsues hilarity.]]

* PoliticiansKissBabies: Sam attempts this as a campaign tactic, with little apparent success even before Bugs disguises himself as a baby and accuses Sam of biting him on the nose. BugsBunny disguises himself as a baby and kisses ''him'', then cries that "the bad man bit my widdle nose!", and all the women start to hit Sam over the head with their [[HandbagOfHurt handbags]] and [[ParasolOfPain umbrellas]].

Added DiffLines:

* TapOnTheHead: This particular short is remarkable in that it features one of the rare occasions where Bugs receives one from one of his usual ButtMonkey antagonists. Specifically, during which Sam [[CarryABigStick takes out his bigger stick]] and whacks Bugs over the head with it.

* AshFace: Exaggerated. After the ExplosiveCigar goes off, a man's ''whole head'' turns to ash, which then blows away. Fortunately, his real head was hidden under his coat.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: The original ending has Sam and Bugs play RussianRoulette; Sam gets an empty chamber, but the short [[IrisOut Irises Out]] as Bugs pulls the trigger and we hear a bang - then we Iris In to reveal that he "missed" and shot Sam. This is inevitably edited out of televised airings.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: The original ending has Sam and scene where Bugs and Sam play RussianRoulette; Russian Roulette after both losing the mayoral race to an actual "dark horse mare" was deleted for many years on American TV airings regardless of channel (it has been edited on ABC, CBS, WB, FOX, syndicated networks, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and Boomerang) with a fake iris-out after Bugs says: "Dark horse?" and Sam gets an empty chamber, says: "Mare?"(Mayor). Since 2011, Cartoon Network has aired the cartoon uncut and uncensored. One local station left the first part of the ending scene intact, but edited the short [[IrisOut Irises Out]] by ending it just as Bugs pulls puts the trigger gun to his head and we hear a bang - then we Iris In to reveal that he "missed" the cartoon irises out, deleting the scene of Bugs missing and shot Sam. This is inevitably shooting Yosemite Sam instead. Because of the darker implications of this edit (that Bugs committed suicide, rather than having blasted Yosemite Sam), this edited out version has only aired once.
**On Nickelodeon, in addition to the above main edit, the part in which Bugs plays his "juteybox" (read: Bugs' marching one-man band) and Sam shoots him is altered so that way, Bugs' marching is played in a loop and Sam is merely heard saying, "Shut off that juteybox! I can't hear myself a-speechin'," followed by a cut to Sam saying: "Now, where was I?", making it seem that Bugs merely stopped because Sam told him to rather than be forced to do it by use
