Alternate Versions

In the original version, Yosemite Sam is "the roughest toughest he-man stuffest hombre that's ever crossed the Rio Grande - and I don't mean Mahatma Gandhi!" In later releases, the line ends "... and I ain't no namby-pamby!" Even the 4-disc DVD set of Looney Tunes shorts released in 2004 replaces the "Mahatma Gandhi" line with "namby-pamby". See more »

the Looney west
15 October 2006 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

When Yosemite Sam, the roughest, toughest he-man ever to cross the Rio Grande - and he ain't namby-pamby - scares everyone out of an Old West town, Bugs Bunny stays and proceeds to play all sorts of tricks on Sam. Once again, Friz Freleng directed a hilarious, irreverent jab at the ordered world (whether it was Friz Freleng or Chuck Jones directing, they always did a great job; not to mention Mel Blanc's voices). I will say that when Sam said "cut the cards", I knew what was going to happen before Bugs did it, but other than that, everything's a real surprise. "Bugs Bunny Rides Again" is one cartoon that will truly live on forever. Because remember, this town is big enough not only for the two of us, but also for Gary Cooper.
