“Wascally wabbit, what’s up with you?” Lawrence Welk wanted to know. Welk, a famous variety show host who had invited Mr. Rabbit on his show, planned to weave music and songs from way back when, into a walk-on skit where Bugs Bunny was making fun of Elmer Fudd.
Bugs was having none of it. No old geezer like Lawrence Welk was going to wiggle his way into mocking his co-worker and friend, Elmer Fudd. “I won’t do it, Welk!” Bugs Bunny warned of retribution if Welk didn’t release him from the contract.
Meanwhile, Walt Disney escorted Snow White on stage. She was holding Winnie the Pooh’s paw, while wistfully encouraging Bugs to come out and join them. Bugs knew the gig was up when he watched Wile E. Coyote whiz right past him in a whirl.
Woefully grabbing Fudd’s hand, he waltzed out on stage and said, “What’s up Doc?” to Lawrence Welk.
