Did You Know?


Bugs tells Clyde that he was testing supersonic aircraft during WWII, but reliable supersonic flight did not become possible until 1947 (since the release date is four years after this event, supersonic aircraft had time to enter popular culture). Some WWII-era planes may have been capable of exceeding Mach 1 during steep powered dives, but no reliable records are available. See more »

User Reviews

This short is a type that the animators called, "cheaters".

This cartoon is what they call a "cheater"-it uses old footage from previously released shorts along with new footage used to frame the clips.

Animation is a very time-consuming and labor-intensive process. Studios contracted to produce a specific number of shorts in a specific time-frame, most often a year. As budgets got tighter and deadlines loomed, in order to work a bit longer on some shorts to do excellent work, Warner Brothers animators (MGM did so as well) started to do "cheaters", which were quicker and cheaper than a fully new short, to stay on deadline and within the allotted budget for the year. The time and money saved on a cheater was used on other projects, to take a bit longer and do it right. Rather than cut corners on every project, like some studios did, they cut corners on a handful of shorts a year. This is one of the better cheaters. Well worth watching. Recommended.
