David is thinking about the meat faerie

Worst Commentary Ever...

I know you warned me chaptal.

Transcribed from the Looney Tunes Golden Collection DVD.
(Warner Brother logo)
"Stan Freberg here. I'm about to appear on this cartoon as the voice of Pete Puma. Along with Bugs Bunny done, of course, by the great Mel Blanc. "
(Name of short "Rabbit's Kin" pops up on screen.)
"This movie is called Rabbit's Kin. "
(Voice credits for film including Mel Blanc and Stan Freberg appear.)
"It is the only one in this series that was ever done and it appears to have taken on a life of it's own. "
("Directed by Robert McKimson" appears on screen.)
"And Bob McKimson of course directed this. And this is Bugs Bunny teaching his nephew how to catch a puma."
(30 seconds of no commentary while Bug's nephew runs and describes his problem with the Puma to Bugs.)
"And I am going to be the voice of the puma any second now. (clears throat)"
(10 seconds with no commentary)
(Bugs climbs up to confront Puma and starts with the tea gag during following commentary.)
"I love the puma character. And, um, drinking tea... lot of cartoons in which tea seems to play an important part. And of course, Pete Puma, when he is asked by Mel Blanc, who I confuse with Bugs Bunny, when he is asked how many lumps he wants in his tea isn't talking about sugar, but how many lumps he want from the mallet hidden behind Bugs's back (laughs to self)"
Puma speaks.
"(Does all of Puma's lines along with puma.) Duh, Tree or four. (Laughs at own, modern, and far less hilarious line readings) (After just repeating lines for a few minutes starts into a discussion of the difference between cartoon violence and real violence."

I turn the commentary off and watch the actual cartoon, which is excellent.
