Most readers have probably seen the classic Bugs Bunny short cartoon “Bunny Hugged” at one time or another from its many airings on TV, but it’s not as well-known that Woody Woodpecker had an adventure of his own in the squared circle, in 1953’s “Wrestling Wrecks”. Amidst all the silliness is a joke at 3:36 which suggests that more people already knew wrestling’s big secret than we might give credit for today.
I love this cartoon! I’ve never seen it before you sent it in!
I especially like the gimmicks at the beginning, including “Man Mountain” (Hmm, so that’s where Vince got the idea for Man Mountain Rock from!).
Woody was the rule-breaker fans loved to cheer 50+ years before Steve Austin!
