Storyline

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 to prove that he is the star of the show. However, Bugs seems to be the crowd favorite as Daffy can't seem to best him in dancing, a magic act, juggling or playing musical instruments. This pushes Daffy to extreme measures as he performs a deadly stunt in his final attempt to impress the audience. He drinks some gasoline, some nitroglycerin, some gunpowder, some Uranium-238, lights up and swallows a match, causing him to explode. The audience gives him the acclaim he deserves for his performance, but Daffy (now an angel rising to heaven) "can only do it once". Written by garykmcd

Although Bugs plays the title role, Daffy is the real star of this show and gets the most screen time. Bugs fans, of course are happy because once again Bugs outsmarts Daffy. But Daffy fans will enjoy the true genius of the Duck. Bugs may have more charisma but Daffy has more heart. Daffy is more like a human being, flawed yet lovable while Bugs seems to be too much of an ideal character.
