Episode Summary of Phrase (Wikipedia)

"Daffy Duck lures Elmer Fudd to Bugs Bunny's burrow, and watches from aside when Elmer attempts to shoot Bugs. Bugs informs Elmer that it isn't rabbit season, but instead duck season. Daffy emerges, irate, and attempts to convince Elmer that Bugs is lying. Their conversation breaks down into Bugs leading Daffy to admit it is duck season by a number of verbal plays".


The "duck season/rabbit season" argument from this short became one of the most notable references of the Looney Tunes franchise (Wikipedia) and it has been re-used in other episodes for it humorous effect.
