Trivia

The winning hand that Bugs has in the climatic poker game with Nasty Canasta that he describes as a "Two Pair. A Pair of Ones and another Pair of Ones." That result is called a Quad of Aces, the highest value of a Four of a Kind that can only be topped by a Straight Flush or a Royal Flush. See more »

Goofs

Early in the cartoon, Bugs is tunneling his way to San Francisco when he hits his head on a rock. As he lifts and rolls it out of his way, the background is visible through it, and it becomes apparent that only the rock's outline has been painted. The error is only noticeable for a few frames, when the rock overlaps a part of the background that isn't the same green as the surrounding grass. It's likely it was meant to be filled in with the same green as the grass; because it looks filled in when it's over that area, this is probably the reason for the error. See more »

You Can't Pull One Over On Bugs Bunny
27 August 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

I like how Bugs' speech has improved over the years. Instead of the normal, "You realize this is war" he now says (at least in this cartoon) "You realize that this is not going to go unchallenged!"

Bugs had just gotten stupidly swindled out of his big rock of gold by some unscrupulous bandit, who rode away with this lode. Six months later, in San Francisco (dig the fantastic artwork of The City, by the way), a derby-wearing Bugs looks into a fancy new saloon and sees "one of those new fancy tele-o- phones," which is really a slot machine. The boss of the place is the crook who stole Bugs' gold, but our hero doesn't notice that right away.....or does he?

Suffice to say, Bugs - quite the gambler - finds a way to get even.
