Complete credited cast:


As Daffy continuously watches Bugs television, when "Beat Your Buddy" (Daffy's all-time favorite), in order, the two contestants mentioned are Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny. Daffy immediately left Bugs' home to head to the station, but has numerous accidents. As Bugs gets to the building first, Daffy used a secret-weapon, to him and get to the top floor, from outside and injures both Bugs and Daffy. As soon as they are able, they head to the station a second time and Daffy is the winner. Seeing the big wooden million box, Daffy freely gave it to Bugs, before being informed the big wooden box contained 1,000,000 little paper boxes, that a brand new new one-dollar bill is inside each box, with a value of $1,000,000. Daffy then regretted giving it away, started braying like a donkey, in embarrassment, as it concludes. Written by 63x927is58401

Did You Know?


The "Million Box" prize (with 1,000,000 $1 dollar bills, 1 inside every box). The way the million box was created as a very large "wooden cube" is, there are 100 aisles of 100: from top to bottom, front to back and left to right. 100 x 100 x 100 = 1,000,000. See more »


Bugs carries a small stool so he can watch TV with Daffy. As they are shown sitting down in front of the TV, Bugs is sitting on a cloth covered ottoman. See more »


Bugs Bunny: [talking to Daffy as he watches TV] Hey, Daffy, how about taking a hike down to, uh...
Daffy Duck: Shh.
Bugs Bunny: But, Daffy...
Daffy Duck: Shh!
Bugs Bunny: What gives? I invited you up here for a vacation and all you want to do is watch TV.
Daffy Duck: Which is extremely difficult when somebody is constantly butting in.
Bugs Bunny: [talking to outside people] Well, if you can't lick 'em, you might as well join them.

Nice to see Bugs and Daffy together, but this was a disappointment
26 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am a big fan of the Looney Tunes cartoons, and particularly of Bugs and Daffy. However, The Million Hare didn't entirely work out. Granted, there are worse cartoons(ie. Devil's Feud Cake, See Ya Later Gladiator), but The Million Hare is light years from being up there with the best. Bugs(not entirely sure about his greedy side though) and Daffy are both great, especially Daffy, and Mel Blanc's voices are excellent. The animation while not amazing was pretty decent particularly in the colours and the music has a good amount of energy. They're not the problems. It's the writing, story and pacing that bring The Million Hare down. The story is predictable and is never quite sure of what direction genre-wise it wants to follow, and the writing feels tired and flabby, at best there may be the odd amusing line but that's it, while the cartoon feels rather pedestrian in the pace. All in all, disappointing but watchable. 5/10 Bethany Cox
