Bugs helps a little penguin get home after the Ice Frolics show he was in is closed. They head south to New Orleans where the penguin gets on the Admiral Byrd, which it turns out is bound for Brooklyn. Their second attempt gets them to the Panama canal but they soon find themselves as the main course for a native dinner. They finally make it to the South Pole but Bugs too late just where home is.

"8 Ball Bunny" has a double connection to Humphrey Bogart: 1) Bogart's character from The Treasure of the Sierra Madre shows up several times in caricature, begging money from Bugs. 2) Bugs, around 4:30, sings a song in calypso style summarizing the plot of the story so far. This is a parody of what the character King Moses regularly did in the radio series Bold Venture, which starred Bogart and Lauren Bacall. See more
The South American native's use of the word "bwana" (referring to the Fred Dobbs ) is out of place since it is an African term originating in the Swahili language. See more
[after getting the penguin on the Admiral Byrd
Ah, this New Orleans. I think I'll stick around for the Madri Grass.
Man drinking mint julep in New Orleans
There goes the old Admiral Byrd, bound for Brooklyn.
Brooklyn? Hey, wait! Wait!
Bye Bye Blackbird
