Storyline

1896, Dawson, Alaska. Thus, the setting for Bugs' first of two encounters with Black Jacque Shellaque, a ruthless French-accented villain. A snow-covered Bugs walks into the saloon with a bagful of gold nuggets (which the rabbit calls "rocks"). Though the rocks have no value to Bugs, that means nothing to Jacque, who believes the bunny is out to get rich. Gags include Bugs' and Jacque's blackjack game, where the rabbit standing on one card (a "21" card) and Bugs substituting the bag of gold nuggets with a one filled with gun powder. The powder leaves a trail behind Jacque, who gloats at his "victory," but Bugs' lighting the trail aborts the villain's celebration. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Trivia

Two of the large sacks lined up against the back wall of the storeroom are labeled "Butler Spuds" and "Gibbroek Corn Meal", following a Termite Terrace tradition of crew members slipping their names into the backgrounds of scenes. See more »

Goofs

During the game of 21, Blacque Jacque Shellacque deals himself two tens. In what is surely a visual gag, both cards are spades (this plus Bugs Bunny's one card of 21 suggests Shellacque is dealing from a crooked deck). See more »

"Give me a straight shot of carrot juice, over the rocks."
30 September 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Bugs mines a fortune in gold rocks (mistakenly thinking when people were talking about carats, they meant carrots) and finds himself being robbed by French Canadian claim jumper Blacque Jacque Shellacque. Enjoyable Bugs short from Robert McKimson but not a great one. Excellent voice work from the incomparable Mel Blanc. Nice music from Milt Franklyn. Showing the state Warner Bros. animation was in at the time, some of the animation in this is recycled from earlier shorts. Overall the animation is colorful but sketchy. There are some funny gags and lines but it's never hilarious. How much you will like it depends largely on how amusing you find Blacque Jacque.
