Season 1952 - Episode 23 - Aired Sep 20, 1952
The cartoon finds Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck again arguing over which of them is “in season” (it is really Duck Season as Daffy says in the beginning), while a befuddled Elmer Fudd tries to figure out which animal is telling the truth. Between using sneaky plays-on-words, and dressing himself in women's clothing (including a Lana Turner-style sweater), Bugs manages to escape unscathed, while Daffy repeatedly has his beak blown: off, upside-down, or sideways, by Mr. Fudd.
#2 - The Pied Piper of Guadalupe
Season 1961 - Episode 13 - Aired Aug 19, 1961
Sylvester plays Mexican music on his flute in an attempt to catch all the mice. They can't resist the music so they come dancing out of their mouse hole, one at a time. Speedy is the only one who resists. Later in the cartoon Slowpoke Rodriguez comes to visit. He is hungry but is too slow to get food out of the kitchen without getting caught by Sylvester. Speedy goes for him but gets stuck in a glue trap set up by Sylvester. Lucky for him he had a bottle of tobasco sauce in his hand and when Sylvester lifts him up to eat him, the tobasco sauce poors into his mouth. The "heat" sends him through the roof and he gets badly injured and has a cast on his leg. At the end Speedy asks him if he wants his musical instrument back. He says no and Speedy says "well, ok". Then he starts playing the same music, forcing Sylvester to dance and hurt his already casted leg even more.

Upon his arrival, his human owner (seen only from the waist down), tired of picking up his things, warns him not to bring a single thing more inside the house. Afraid of his mistress but unable to get rid of the kitten, the dog tries to hide the cat by pretending it is a wind-up toy or a powder puff. He barely finds the time to hide it in a flour bin before his mistress enters the kitchen. Terrified, he looks on as she takes some flour out of the box to bake some cookies. The cat is poured into the mixing bowl without the lady realizing it. Marc Antony unplugs the mixer before she can pulverize the poor kitten. Tired of the dog's antics, his mistress throws him out of the house while, unseen, the cat extracts itself from the bowl. In the backyard, the bulldog watches through a window as what he thinks is his kitten is mixed, rolled and cut before being put in the oven. Sobbing and heartbroken, he barely finds the strength to take the cat-shaped cookie his mistress gives to him and place it lovingly on his back where his kitten used to rest. Only then does he hear the little meow of Pussyfoot right in front to him. He kisses the cat as his mistress realises he has a pet. To the dog's surprise, she allows him to keep the cat as long as he takes care of it. Once again, Pussyfoot goes to sleep on Marc Anthony's back as the content dog smiles.
