Trivia

This is the first Friz Freleng Bugs Bunny/Daffy Duck cartoon to appear as essentially a clip show because of being mainly made up of reused footage from earlier cartoons, due to extreme low budget costs during this time of the late 1950's (the other two would later be Show Biz Bugs (1957) and Person to Bunny (1960) See more »

"Oh boy, I could be sent to prison for the scenes I'm going to steal!"
9 February 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Cute Daffy and Bugs short with a very funny set-up. This one has Daffy complaining to a Warner Bros. executive about Bugs getting all the attention. It just so happens the exec is having trouble finding stunt doubles for Bugs so Daffy is easily talked into taking on the job. This leads to several scenes where we see the cartoons being filmed like live-action movies. When it gets to the point in the scenes where violence is supposed to be inflicted upon Bugs, Daffy is forced to stand in and take the lumps. This type of cartoon, where the characters are actors acting out their roles, is the kind of thing that is all too common in modern Looney Tunes. It isn't funny anymore but, back then, it was fresh and clever. This is also a rare case where Bugs, Daffy, Yosemite Sam, and Elmer Fudd all appear in the same short. The animation is bright and colorful. The music is lively and fun. Great voice work from Mel Blanc and Arthur Q. Bryan, of course. Lots of laughs to be had here, particularly where Daffy is concerned. Love that ending.
