"Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies"(Dell) # 99, January 1950: ""Bugs in Toyland"

In this strange Christmas tale from 1950, Bugs Bunny buys a carrot as a gift for his girlfriend Lula Belle, but when he sees her buying an expensive watch, he assumes it's for him and decides he needs to come up with a better present. He stumbles upon two scientists who need a test subject for their rocket launch to the moon. Their offer to pay entices Bugs to agree, but the rocket doesn't make it to the moon. Instead, it crashes at the North Pole, where the rabbit discovers Santa Claus in a bit of a conundrum. It gets weirder from there.

  1. As I supposed, human-faced Lula Belle Bunny looks kinda creepy... :)

  2. Thanks for posting this story!

    Ages ago, when I used far too many colors in my Blog posts, I wrote in detail about it – but had no way of scanning it into the post.

    I’ve linked to this post in an update – and offer my post to you in return.
