During the "test pilot" segment (a clip from "Falling Hare"), Bugs tells Clyde that he was testing a "supersonic job". The plane depicted is propeller-driven and incapable of supersonic flight under normal circumstances. They may be able to exceed Mach 1 during a steep powered drive, but do not otherwise have that capability. See more »

ONE OF MY FAVORITE BUGS BUNNY CARTOONS EVER!!!
19 April 1999 | by (Tonkawa, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

What makes this one of my two favorites Bugs Bunny cartoons ever (The other is "Rabbit Hood", but, that's another story), is of the use of recycled footage of Bugs Bunny cartoons made in the 1940's. The Technicolor in the "Falling Hare" excerpt is by far superior to those "Public-Domain" prints we seen those days. Not only this 1943 Bob Clampett cartoon is use, but, also of two Chuck Jones Bugs cartoons ("Rabbit Punch', and "Haredevil Hare" [which introduced Marvin Martin to the Looney Tunes gang]} and Freling's own Bugs cartoons ("Stage Door Cartoon" and "Baseball Bugs"). The reason for this cartoon is made, is because very few Bugs Bunny cartoons have been reissued before the Mid-1950's (Surprising enough, the print we see in this cartoon is from a Late-1950's reissue, which by that time, the cartoons that was excepted is under different copyright ownership). Although it's the only Bugs Bunny that use recycled footage, the success of this (Doesn't everyone know that Bugs is still popular today than it was when this cartoon was released?) help proved Warner Bros. to make several more of this concept, until their original cartoon studio closed in 1963. This cartoon, because of its concept, and its star, and of the clever work of Friz Freling, as always, is highly recommended.
