Storyline

At a baseball game between the Gashouse Gorillas and the Tea-Totallers, a heckling Bugs Bunny is forced to play all positions against the brutish Gorillas. Naturally, their muscle is no match for Bugs' wit and pitching skill. Written by <mike.konczewski@itb.mckhboc.com>

Halfway through the cartoon, the scoreboard shows the Gas-House Gorillas after four innings with the following scores: 10 + 28 + 16 + 42 for a total of 96 runs. Yet, in the bottom of the ninth, the announcer gives the score as "Gas-House Gorillas: 95 points. Bugs Bunny: 96." See more »

Bugs & Baseball - Hilariously Absurd!
14 February 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

We are at the Polo Grounds in New York City with the visiting team - the Gas-House Gorillas - giving the home team - the Tea Totallers - a thrashing, leading 94-0 and it's only the top of the fourth inning! Bugs emerges from his hole in the outfield and is disgusted. "Hey, I can beat this team singled-handed," he thinks, so he takes over from the 91-year-old pitcher who is getting shellacked. In fact, he takes over for everybody, being the whole team!

From that point on, it really becomes total lunacy - but one of the funniest Bugs Bunny cartoons I've ever seen (well, I'm a baseball fan, too) - capped off by a the most ridiculous catch ever made!

This was a lot of fun to watch. I hope Bugs did more sports cartoons and, if so, I get a chance to see them.
