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 »

Quotes

Nasty Canasta: Now, then, the idea in draw poker is for you to try to get a bigger hand than I got.
[while Canasta is talking, Bugs takes off a glove, inflates it, and puts it back on]
Nasty Canasta: So I deal five cards to the each of us, and we choose the best ones, and we draw some more cards, and whoever has the biggest hand wins. You win, see?
[pause]
Nasty Canasta: [shouting] Cut it out, can't ya?

A very funny cartoon thanks to Tedd Pierce's wonderful script and Jones's impeccable timing
9 January 2009 | by (Lincoln, England) – See all my reviews

Chuck Jones's 'Barbary Coast Bunny' is a hilarious cartoon which benefits greatly from a terrific script by Tedd Pierce. Jones goes for a minimal look in his layouts which proves to be a wise choice since 'Barbary Coast Bunny' is very much a cartoon based heavily around the interaction of two characters. This interaction, as per usual, is realised with impeccable timing by Jones. When Bugs Bunny accidentally finds an enormous gold nugget, the villainous Nasty Canasta (a dopier re-imagining of the villain from 'Drip Along Daffy') steals it and uses it to build his own casino. Bugs turns up at this casino, disguised as a know-nothing out-of-town type and proceeds to get more than his money back. The gambling sequences get progressively funnier as Bugs manages to win money even from sources that are not supposed to dispense it! 'Barbary Coast Bunny' was a cartoon that I loved as a child and its unexpected twists and deftly imaginative script ensure that I still love it equally as much as an adult.
