THE BOOTLEG FILES: “ALL THIS AND RABBIT STEW”

BOOTLEG FILES 019: “All This and Rabbit Stew” (1941 Bugs Bunny cartoon that’s been censored due to racist content).

LAST SEEN: Currently playing online in a duped print.

AMERICAN HOME VIDEO: None.

REASON FOR DISAPPEARANCE: The film’s reckless use of an egregious African-American stereotype has kept it out of official circulation.

CHANCES OF SEEING A HOME VIDEO/DVD RELEASE: Highly unlikely, given the volatility of including racially insensitive material in commercial presentations.

BOOTLEG OPPORTUNITIES: Widely available in various unauthorized collections of racist animation.
