Trivia

One of the billboards surrounding the ball field advertises "Filboid Studge". This is a fictional breakfast food that figures centrally in a short story of the same title by the British author Hector Hugh Munro (aka Saki). In the story, an unappetizing and commercially failing breakfast product is turned into a phenomenal success through a cynical, outrageous advertising campaign. See more »

I was not expecting so much "fun"
26 November 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

My description for this Bugs Bunny episode, overall, is fun. The beginning of it is very boring and not very funny, but Bugs Bunny transforms this cartoon completely. If it had been any other cartoon character, this episode would have been a disaster. Bugs Bunny had to come on to enhance the action.

Bugs Bunny is watching a very boring and bad (according to him anyway) baseball match, saying he could do better. Not too surprisingly, the other players of the game challenge him to a game and Bugs Bunny accepts. Can he really do better than the other team..?

I liked this episode for the animation, some of the jokes (which were very original in 1946) and of course, Bugs Bunny. Personally I did not think the subject of baseball would make this episode very enjoyable, but I enjoyed it a great deal.

I recommend this episode to anyone who likes Bugs Bunny and to anyone who likes baseball (or people who can bear it). Enjoy "Baseball Bugs"! :-)
