Warner Brothers Victory Garden cartoon references

In both World Wars, Americans were encouraged to plant vegetable gardens to assist in stretching food supplies, which millions in fact did. Thus, the jokes about Victory Gardens in Jack Wabbit and the Beanstalk (Freleng, 1943, where the Giant catches Bugs using an axe to chop down a giant carrot), A Tale of Two Kitties (Clampett, 1942, in which Babbit is seen watering a Victory Garden), and Buckaroo Bugs (Clampett, 1944, where Bugs has pinched all the carrots from the Victory Garden maintained in a small San Fernando Alley town) would have registered with audiences. A Victory Garden, fueled by horse manure, is also seen in the Private Snafu short The Home Front (Tashlin, 1943).
"Our story begins when the west was young and early pioneers settle down to never more roam and make the San Fernnando Valley their home. Masked murader strikes again. There he goes. Catch him. He got away with everything. What he get? All the money from the bank. No! All the carrots from the Victory Garden! The side-wind'n-bushwacker." Bugs Bunny, Buckaroo Bugs

This was Bugs Bunny's second appearance in the Looney Tunes series. His first was a short cameo in Porky Pig's Feat, but was not a starring role, therefore making Buckaroo Bugs Bugs' first starring role in a Looney Tunes short.
