I remember watching Saturday morning cartoons and hearing, “What’s up Doc?” I knew at that moment that entertaining things were about to happen in upcoming cartoon shows. The Carol Burnett Show is also known for hilarious skits, like when Tim Conway portrays a rabbit as a defendant nibbling on a carrot. His long ears flop around randomly, and he hops to his chair, apparently believing that he is a rabbit. The bunny seriously says, “What is up Doc?at the beginning of the skit, connecting his antics to what is to come.
Before long, the prosecutor can’t believe that anyone can think he’s a “wabbit” using the typical bunny pronunciation. The prosecutor intends to have him “behind bars” before long for damaging his neighbor’s property by painting an arrow from the highway to a tunnel painted on the neighbor’s house.
Conway sticks his fingers into a paint can and repeats this action several tunes saying that he could be wrong, but he believes it’s paint. As the lawyer turns his back, the bunny discreetly wipes paint dripping from his hand on the lawyer’s suitcoat back.
When the rabbit’s shown white paint by the prosecutor and identifies it as milk after carefully testing it with his fingers, the lawyer takes a sip. The bunny then looks at the judge and says, “This person drinks paint and he calls me a dummy?”
The aggravated lawyer asks the bunny for his carrot and receives an explosive sparkler instead. The lawyer runs out of the courtroom with it burning in his hand before it explodes. This bunny caused big trouble again.
One of the funniest parts of the skit is when the bunny says the famous words, “That’s all folks!” This ends one of the most laughable skits that Tim Conway has ever done.
