Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This cartoon marks the first appearance of Yosemite Sam, the "meanest, roughest, rip-roarin'est, Edward Everett Horton-est" outlaw in the West. Attempting to rob the Superchief train, Sam is unaware that one of the passengers is Bugs Bunny, who proves to be the bandit's match in every way (watch the classic reaction when Sam orders Bugs to "draw!"). A chase ensues, with Bugs at one point running out of the cartoon and smack into some live-action Technicolor stock footage. The final showdown culminates with a cliffhanger, as a tied-up Bugs faces certain death--but a fadeout surpise is in store for both Sam and the audience.
