Yosemite Sam Rides Again

Speaking of Sam, here's a clip from the original version of "Bugs Bunny Rides Again" (1947) that wasn't restored for the DVD release. In the original cartoon (as seen in the clip below), Sam makes a reference to Mahatma Gandhi. When this short was reissued after Gandhi's death, the line was redubbed by Mel as "...and I ain't no namby pamby". The reissue version is the one most of us are familiar with. However, prints of the original circulated in syndication through the 1980s. Thanks to absolutpaul for the clip.

Wow ! Thanks for sharing that ! I didn't know that line had to be re-dubbed.
