"Awfully unsporting of me, I know, but, what the hey, I gotta have SOME fun!"
—Daffy Duck in the openingnote "And besides, it's really duck season!"
"Rabbit Seasoning" was a 1952Looney Tunes short, the second in a trilogy of Bugs-Daffy-Elmer cartoons known as the "hunting trilogy," the others being "Rabbit Fire" (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.
"No more tropes for me, thanks, I'm driving":
Amusing Injuries: By this point, Daffy is mildly irritated at being shot by Elmer Fudd.
Aside Glance: Though Bugs does this a couple times, Daffy reacts this way whenever he gets shot or whenever Elmer falls for one of Bugs' tricks.
Elmer himself does this the first time Daffy says "So, shoot me now" as if he needed to double-check to make sure he heard Daffy correctly.
Genre Savvy: After falling for the above Duck Season, Rabbit Season gag twice Daffy stops himself from talking to Bugs again, and tries to solve the problem by talking to Elmer, whom he can trick. Naturally it works out the same thanks to Bugs stepping in.
Screwy Squirrel: 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.
Smug Snake: Daffy. He is wilier than Elmer, but his ego insists on taking on the much more competent Bugs as well.
Too Dumb to Live: 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.
"He does so have to shoot me now! I demand that you shoot me now!"
Villain Ball: Daffy had already succeeded in escaping Elmer from the very start of the short, with him believing it is Rabbit Season and Bugs being more than willing to start his usual back and forth with the hunter. Nevertheless he still breaks from his hiding spot, attempting to coach Elmer for not getting the job done. It's not enough to escape getting his head blown off, Bugs has to get blasted by Elmer in his place, and Daffy has to be there to see it.
