Storyline

At a baseball game between the Gashouse Gorillas and the Tea-Totallers, a heckling Bugs Bunny is forced to play all positions against the brutish Gorillas. Naturally, their muscle is no match for Bugs' wit and pitching skill. Written by <mike.konczewski@itb.mckhboc.com>

Trivia

The conclusion of the cartoon features Bugs atop the Umpire State Building and he throws his glove in the air to catch the drive by the Gashouse Gorilla. The umpire calls the batter out, but throwing a glove at a batted ball is actually a ground rule triple. No out should be awarded. See more »

The home team is shown batting at the top of the inning. See more »

Bugs & Baseball - Hilariously Absurd!
14 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We are at the Polo Grounds in New York City with the visiting team - the Gas-House Gorillas - giving the home team - the Tea Totallers - a thrashing, leading 94-0 and it's only the top of the fourth inning! Bugs emerges from his hole in the outfield and is disgusted. "Hey, I can beat this team singled-handed," he thinks, so he takes over from the 91-year-old pitcher who is getting shellacked. In fact, he takes over for everybody, being the whole team!

From that point on, it really becomes total lunacy - but one of the funniest Bugs Bunny cartoons I've ever seen (well, I'm a baseball fan, too) - capped off by a the most ridiculous catch ever made!

This was a lot of fun to watch. I hope Bugs did more sports cartoons and, if so, I get a chance to see them.
