P: Elmer 'n' Bugs

E: That Schoolhouse Rock about pronouns

Ted said...

Correct on both counts.

And the Connection?

Rasalom said...

Dude, I got nothin'. Could it be simply the alliteration of "Albert Andreas Armadillo" and "Bugs Bunny"?

Ted said...

No, not alliteration...do a little Googling, and it should pop into view.

Jeff said...

Huh. Not only are they alliterative, they come in abecedarian order. I wonder if that's on purpose...?

Lisa P said...

The pleb is not Elmer and Bugs, it's Daffy and Bugs trying to outwit Elmer.[\nitpicking]

Otherwise, I have no clue.

Also, I love the word abecederian.

Jeff said...

From the way it looks, you'd assume the English language has 3 times as many e's as anything else.

Ted said...

Lisa is correct, actually. The "Duck Season! Rabbit Season!" exchange is between Daffy and Bugs as opposed to Elmer and Bugs.

Connection: As Ray stated, the Schoolhouse Rock in question (entitled "Rufus Xavier Sasparilla") is about pronouns. One of the famous lines from the Duck Season/Rabbit Season trilogy of cartoons is Daffy saying "pronoun trouble".

From Wikipedia:
Daffy Duck: [re-animated] Hah! That’s it! Hold it right there! [to audience] Pronoun trouble. [to Bugs] It's not "he doesn't have to shoot you now", it's "he doesn't have to shoot me now"
[Pause]
Daffy: [angrily] Well, I say he does have to shoot me now!! [to Elmer] So shoot me now!
[Elmer shoots Daffy again]
