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>

Goofs

Bugs is playing for the home team. At the end of the cartoon, he is leading the Gashouse Gorillas 96-92. The gorillas have two outs, one man on base and a batter at the plate. The announcer says that a home run would be a win for the Gorillas. However, the home team always has the final ups in a game, so even if the Gorillas scored in the top of the ninth inning, Bugs would have a comeback opportunity. See more »

One, Two, Three Strikes You're Out!
24 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

In most Bugs Bunny cartoons, he is pitted against a foe, usually human, while formidable in their own way, are obviously not in his league when it comes to brains. In this particular one, directed by Friz Freleng, he is up against a whole team of them. Bugs calls the Gas House Gorillas "a bunch of dirty cheaters". They then challenge him to a game of baseball where Bugs has to play every position, plus having to catch up where the Tea Totalers left off, behind 96-0 or something close to this score. Many of the jokes aren't up to writer Michael Maltese's usual standards, but anyone who has ever watched this cartoon will never forget the ending sequence where Bugs has to catch the last out of the game to win it.
