Goofs

Early in the cartoon, Bugs is tunneling his way to San Francisco when he hits his head on a rock. As he lifts and rolls it out of his way, the background is visible through it, and it becomes apparent that only the rock's outline has been painted. The error is only noticeable for a few frames, when the rock overlaps a part of the background that isn't the same green as the surrounding grass. It's likely it was meant to be filled in with the same green as the grass; because it looks filled in when it's over that area, this is probably the reason for the error. See more »

beware the gold
29 May 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

"Barbary-Coast Bunny" portrays Bugs Bunny on his way to San Francisco to visit his cousin Herman (he has a cousin Herman?) when he runs into a giant slab of solid gold. When big, ugly thug Nasty Canasta - who previously appeared in the Daffy Duck-Porky Pig vehicle "Drip Along Daffy, although looking a little different - steals the gold, Bugs says something that basically means "this means war".

True, I don't understand why it takes Bugs six months to arrive in San Francisco, or why they just let him win so easily; part of what made these cartoons so great was how he ended up in sticky situations but messed with them. But, as far as I'm concerned, as classic Bugs cartoon is a good one, especially when directed by Chuck Jones. Not the best, but still worth seeing.

I wonder how the San Francisco area got the name "Barbary Coast". That moniker originally referred to North Africa, in reference to the Berbers.
