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 »

This time, it counts!
18 August 2003 | by (Bristol, CT) – See all my reviews

I think some baseball-themed movies are not palatable. This is why I declare "Baseball Bugs" the greatest baseball movie of all time.

The dead-on and intensely funny comedy in this short starts even before Bugs is on-screen. The disheveled but menacing Gashouse Gorillas give an old-timer team a routing, complete with a *screaming* hit to right field and a memorable samba-base-crossing. No sooner than Bugs gets on screen to heckle the Gorillas, he is called out to challenge them to a game. Then it's Bugs playing iron-rabbit baseball, all nine positions and batting the entire lineup! Here Bugs dwarfs his athletic efforts from "Space-Jam" and puts A-Rod and many other All-Stars to shame. B-Bun is an inspiration in this short and pulls out every hilarious stop to defeat these guys. Check out the awesome, tension-building hit towards the end.

In MLB, when a home pitcher does a rare 1-2-3 strikeout, some ballparks display when Bugs tosses his slowball at three Gashouse Gorillas, striking 'em out simultaneously. B-Bun would clearly pull down more $$$$$$ than A-Rod. This short is one for ESPN Classic.
