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.

The final lines in the cartoon, with both the Statue of Liberty and Bugs saying "That's what the man said! You heard what he said, he said that!" is a recurring line from Rochester on The Jack Benny Program. See more
Concerning the final at-bat in the cartoon, the ball would've been a home run once it crosses the outfield fence in fair territory, nullifying any attempts for Bugs to catch it for an out. Secondly, even if the ball was still legally in play, Bugs throwing his mitt up to catch the ball is illegal. According to rule 5.06(b)(4)(C) (formerly 7.05(c)), if a fielder throws a glove at a fair ball and the glove makes contact, all runners (including the batter) may advance three bases, and "the ball is in play and the batter may advance to home base at his peril."
