There is a sign reading "G. Chiniquy Blacksmith" in the dancing sequence. That is a reference to animator Gerry Chiniquy. See more »

In the original version, Yosemite Sam is "the roughest toughest he-man stuffest hombre that's ever crossed the Rio Grande - and I don't mean Mahatma Gandhi!" In later releases, the line ends "... and I ain't no namby-pamby!" Even the 4-disc DVD set of Looney Tunes shorts released in 2004 replaces the "Mahatma Gandhi" line with "namby-pamby". See more »
When Yosemite Sam comes into town, his reputation comes before him and the majority of the town run in fear of their lives. However Bugs Bunny stands his ground in a saloon stand off which spills out into the street to decide who stays in the town and who goes.
Another of the Bugs cartoons that sets itself in the old west opposite Sam to good effect and this is easily one of the best cartoons that I've seen with them. The animation is full and looks great, the characters are detailed and the backgrounds aren't just coloured blotches in the rear of the shot! The plot is a good western spoof (Bugs even says `just like Gary Cooper' at one point') and is pretty funny for most of the time.
Bugs is on top form and Sam is pretty sharp. The two work well together and Sam is a good partner for Bugs. The material is pretty clever but still has good physical slapstick too boot. Overall this is a really good Bugs Bunny cartoon with plenty of laughs and a real sense of quality in everything from the animation, the characters and material.
