Two Guys from Texas is a 1948 musical comedy film starring Dennis Morgan, Jack Carson, and Dorothy Malone. The movie was directed by David Butler, written by Allen Boretz and I.A.L. Diamond, produced by Alex Gottlieb, and released by Warner Bros. Pictures on September 4, 1948. This was a follow-up to Two Guys from Milwaukee, also starring Morgan and Carson, which in turn was an attempt to capture some of the appeal of the Bing Crosby and Bob Hope Road pictures.
The film is perhaps best remembered today for featuring an animated cameo appearance of cartoon character Bugs Bunny, voiced by Mel Blanc. Friz Freleng, Warner's leading animation director, was assigned to direct the special animated dream sequence, in which Bugs gives some advice to a caricatured Jack Carson.
While Bugs Bunny was not the star of the film, his appearance stands out as a landmark in his long career. Bugs would later have a similar cameo in 1949's My Dream Is Yours, which also starred Jack Carson.
Dream SequenceIn the animated dream, Carl is a sheep herder who is playing a hand-craft flute to all the ewes when suddenly Steve appear behind a tree where he place a wolf mask (which turned him into a toon wolf) and whistled to all the ewes and they all ran towards him as Carl begged them to stay.
After that Bugs appeared and asked Carl what's the problem Carl explain that each time he gather a bunch sheeps Steve (who he refer to as "The Wolf") takes them away from him and Bugs told him to come close to him and whisper the idea, in which Carl thanks him but not before Bugs called him a chump.
Meanwhile Steve is singing "Every Day I Love You Just A Little Bit More" to all ewes who suddenly turned into anthromorphic sheeps with BobbySocker Shoes, Hearts in eyes and calling his name in a swoon voice.
Just then Carl appears wearing a different wolf outfit and called out to all the ewes as he singed the same some but out of key. This angry the ewes as they took off their shoes and began throwing them at Carl, suddenly a large native american women appears and chased Carl as he ran from her.
