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 »

Goofs

Halfway through the cartoon, the scoreboard shows the Gas-House Gorillas after four innings with the following scores: 10 + 28 + 16 + 42 for a total of 96 runs. Yet, in the bottom of the ninth, the announcer gives the score as "Gas-House Gorillas: 95 points. Bugs Bunny: 96." See more »

User Reviews

a comedic home-run!!
5 November 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having just got the "Loony Tunes Golden Collection"(which i HIGHLY recommend, by the way), I'm going to try to comment on most if not all of the cartoons individually. As such the starting statement might seem redundant for those whom read multiple reviews of them, for this i apologize.

Baseball Bugs is a great cartoon of Bugs playing baseball (in all positions) against the Gashouse Gorillas' team. Some funny sight gags make this short great.

My Grade: B+

DVD Extras: Disk 1: an introduction by Chuck Jones; The Boy of Termite Terrice part 1; clips from the films "Two Guys from Texas" and "My Dream is Yours", both with Bugs cameos; Bridging sequences for an episode of "the Bugs Bunny show"; the Astro Nuts audio recording session; 2 vintage trailers; "Blooper Bunny: Bugs Bunny 51st and a half anniversary" with optional commentary with writer Greg Ford & stills gallery
