Trivia

The U.S. Marine Corps was so flattered that Bugs Bunny decides to become a Marine in this film that it insisted he be officially inducted into the Corps as a private, which was done, complete with dogtags. Bugs was regularly promoted until he was officially "discharged" at the end of World War II as a Master Sergeant. See more »

Goofs

When setting out on his mission, Bugs puts five super-carrots into his case, yet by the end of the cartoon the case seems to hold several dozen carrots. See more »

Quotes

Bugs Bunny: Eh, what are you shootin' at, doc?
Cottontail Smith: Rabbits. I hate rabbits. If there's anything I hate more than a rabbit, it's two rabbits.

God bless Ameri-Bugs!
25 December 2005 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Still in his relative infancy, Bugs Bunny becomes a superhero out to fight an anti-rabbit cowboy. I really liked the scene of the two of them on the horse. Maybe the wartime themes make us cringe a little bit nowadays, but they're not vicious by any stretch (although I hear that some Looney Tunes cartoons were). Maybe this wasn't the greatest Bugs Bunny cartoon in history, but it's definitely worth seeing. Anyone can plainly see why the Looney Tunes cartoons from the '40s and '50s were some of the best cartoons in cinema history (I can't say the same for their modern cartoons; for starters, no more Mel Blanc). A real classic.
