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 »

promoting the Columbus myth, but still hilarious
26 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

Obviously, "Hare We Go" is promoting the myth of Christopher Columbus's life. In reality, it's unclear whether or not Columbus was really Italian (he may have been a Spanish Jew who converted to Christianity during the Inquisition); by the time that he set sail, most people on both sides of the Atlantic had already figured out that the Earth is round (Washington Irving made up the story about him proving it round); the story about the crew trying to mutiny mostly seems to be making those at the top look good - an attack on the working class, if you will; and Columbus couldn't have discovered America if there were already people there (never mind that he initiated 500 years of genocide against the Indians). "Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong" tells the whole story.

Oh well, other than that, it's great to see Bugs Bunny's gags, as he accompanies Columbus as mascot on the trip across the ocean, and then discovers America. Another classic cartoon.
