I just watched the "Falling Hare" cartoon and the gremlin responds to a question from Bugs saying, "Well it ain't Vindle Vilky!!" lol (If i'm spelling it correctly.) I just wondered who the heck Vindle Vilky is. I tried to do a search on MSN, Google and didn't get a thing. You would think that the writers would haven't have made it up. (It wouldn't any make sense.)
Does anybody know what this persons all about?
Thanks in advance, Matt firstname.lastname@example.org
- Utility industry executive who became the dark horse Republican candidate for President in 1940, finishing respectably against Franklin Roosevelt. During WOrld War II, he became a sort of roving ambassador for Roosevelt, and was viewed as having given a highly credible performance in that role.
- A portrait of Willkie can be seen next to Roosevelt (as, respectively, the Mt. Rushmore figures of choice for Republicans and Democrats) in Aviation Vacation (Avery, 1941). The Gremlin indicates to Bugs Bunny (loudly) that he is not Willkie in Falling Hare (Clampett, 1943).

Shouldn't there be at least one reference to Roald Dahl on this page, as it was his story, sold to Disney, that inspired the whole cartoon? (Dahl, RAF veteran, introduced the "gremlin destroying plane machinery" to people outside the RAF) I would do it myself but i'm not such an experienced contributor, also my English is flawed. --Helt91 (talk) 23:58, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
Dated vs. folk songs
It's fine to write about the ways in which the cartoon is dated, and to mention the use of folk songs, but those are separate and unrelated topics. The use of songs that already were old when the cartoon was made is not an example of the cartoon being dated. Richard K. Carson (talk) 05:57, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
I do not understand this sentence:
- In the series Revolution, The TV screen that Bugs Bunny is looking at a window, making him sick and turning pink in this animated cartoon, is completely shut off and shut down forever.
Maybe this means: "Part of Falling Hare is seen on a TV screen in Revolution; the last thing shown, before the TV is permanently turned off, is Bugs looking at a window and turning pink." (Turned off because all broadcasting stops?) But maybe it means something else. —Tamfang (talk) 02:31, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
