Bugs Bunny Nips the Nips is a 1944 World War II-era cartoon directed by Friz Freleng.

Plot

Bugs Bunny battles highly racially stereotyped Japanese soldiers.

Home Video Releases

The release of this cartoon on the VHS, however, caused a controversy. The Japanese American Citizens League protested the short's inclusion on the Bugs Bunny by Each Director tape. They felt it was inappropriate to market it among the more standard, family-friendly tapes. While MGM/UA initially defended their decision, they later voluntarily pulled the tape and the box set containing it from distribution. Later printings of The Golden Age of Looney Tunes Volume 1 Laserdisc set replaced the short with Racketeer Rabbit. [1]

Bans

As a result of the withdrawal, Turner banned the cartoon from television syndication in 1993 and is still banned to this day (even plans to have it air on the 2001 June Bugs that was supposed to have every Bugs Bunny cartoon ever made fell through when AOL Time Warner announced that 12 Bugs Bunny cartoons featuring racial stereotypes were going to be shelved. It was also going to air on a ToonHeads episode about the 12 banned Bugs shorts, but the series was canceled and the episode was shelved). The cartoon saw limited broadcast on Toonheads during a special on World War II cartoons, but they were mostly clips. Since the cartoon has no Turner "1995 dubbed version" ending card, it is assumed to be banned from syndication.
