Trivia

Shortly after King Ferdinand kicked out Christopher Columbus, out of his palace, Bugs Bunny's first scene occurs and looks at Christopher Columbus' globe. Then when his voice of frustration, as if cursing in Italian, Bugs asks why. Columbus tells Bugs that King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella do not believe that Earth is round. Bugs then gets a baseball (before the sport was created) and tosses it. Twenty to thirty seconds later it arrives with marks and names of 8 famous city names. Paris, France. Cairo, Egypt. Shanghai, China. London, England. Lima, Peru. Bombay, India. Brooklyn, New York. Hollywood, California. See more »

Lesser Bugs short
2 January 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Looney Tunes version of Christopher Columbus' voyage to America with Bugs Bunny along for the ride. It's not great, folks. Mel Blanc voices Columbus with this Mario Bros. accent while turning King Ferdinand into a Mexican from the Speedy Gonzales cartoons, for some reason. Stereotyped accents don't bother me usually but here they're just distracting (and in Ferdinand's case just wrong). Queen Isabella is made to sound like Mae West or something, which is amusing at least. It's not a funny short with no memorable gags and most of the humor relying on the "that's-a spicy meatball-a" stuff from Columbus and his crew. At one point they resort to puns for laughs with a "captain's mess" joke that's just groan-worthy. On the plus side Carl Stalling's music is nice and the animation is lovely, with well-drawn characters and backgrounds and great colors. It's a pretty weak effort for the classic era, when Bugs had few misfires.
