Daffy Duck arrives at his vaudeville theatre to learn that Bugs Bunny has been given top billing over him. A competition ensues with Daffy out to get the top billing he deserves. Bugs seems to be the crowd favorite however as Daffy can't seem to best him in dancing, a magic act, juggling or in playing musical instruments. It pushes Daffy to extreme measures. Written by

Exploding musical instrument scheme is the same in three Warner Brothers cartoons. The musical score is "Those Endearing Young Charms". In order, they are, first is 1951's Ballot Box Bunny
(1951), as Yosemite Sam tried to get rid of Bugs Bunny, with a piano. Second is 1957's Show Biz Bugs
(1957), as Daffy Duck tried to get rid of Bugs Bunny, with a xylophone. Then, in 1965, the rivals were Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner, in Rushing Roulette
(1965). Wile E. Coyote set up a piano, & after the Roadrunner played a 'sour note', Wile E. played the correct theme. Additional fact: The very same musical note, approximately the seventh note to the tenth note, is the note, that is not played correctly, every time and when correctly played, by the schemer, gets the explosion occurred to it, instead.

25 cents? It's robbery, but I'll pay it.
