Storyline

While on vacation, Bugs and Daffy take a wrong turn and get lost in the Himalayas. There they encounter the Abominable Snow Man, who happens to be looking for a pet, promising that he will "love him and hug him and call him George." Neither Bugs nor Daffy are too eager to become the object of his affection. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

The Abominable Snowman character is inspired by Lon Chaney Jr.'s performance in Of Mice and Men (1939). This may also explains why he calls all other characters George. See more »

Quotes

Daffy Duck: Old pal, do me a favor, will you? Just don't do me any more favors. You just stay here and study to be a snowshoe rabbit. I'm going back to Perth Amboy.

Bugs Makes Another Wrong Turn, And Daffy Pays For It
4 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"I told you to turn left at East St. Louis," yells a shivering Daffy Duck to Bugs Bunny after the latter made another wrong turn in another long underground excursion. This time, the two Looney Tunes characters wind up in the Himalayas (a tiny bit off their destination!).

Daffy heads back to Perth Amboy and leaves Bugs to become a "snow shoe bunny." However, our duck hero doesn't go far, running into the "Ambomniable Snow Man," who is anything but scary. He's just a big dumb oaf, modeled after "Lenny" of the novel "Mice and Men." You know that because he calls daffy "George" and the little duck is a rabbit and adopts him as his pet.

The cartoon turns out to be a familiar story in a lot of LTs when Bugs and Daffy are together, meaning each other tries to foist off the other to an unwanted character. Many times it was Elmer Fudd, the hunter; this time, an "abominable snowman."

The best gag, I thought, was the last minute when all of the characters wind up in Hawaii- type island.
