Two French chefs, Louis and François, both want to cook dinner specials for their restaurants, and both their dishes involve rabbits. They both spot Bugs and fight over who gets to cook him until Bugs outwits both of them. Bugs tricks the chefs into believing he has a recipe from the famed Antoine's of New Orleans; allowed to demonstrate it on them, he places them both in a bowl of vegetables, then places this into an oven with a stick of dynamite. After the dynamite explodes, the chefs, having survived the blast, sing Alouette.
On ABC's "The Bugs Bunny & Tweety Show", the sequence where the two French chefs clobbering each other with cookery was shortened. Also deleted was Bugs inserting a stick of dynamite into a carrot before placing said carrot with the two chefs into "La Oven".
