Trivia

"8 Ball Bunny" has a double connection to Humphrey Bogart: 1) Bogart's character from The Treasure of the Sierra Madre shows up several times in caricature, begging money from Bugs. 2) Bugs, around 4:30, sings a song in calypso style summarizing the plot of the story so far. This is a parody of what the character King Moses regularly did in the radio series Bold Venture, which starred Bogart and Lauren Bacall. See more »

Goofs

The South American native's use of the word "bwana" (referring to the Fred Dobbs ) is out of place since it is an African term originating in the Swahili language. See more »

"Hit the road!"
9 August 2016 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Classic Bugs Bunny short directed by Chuck Jones from a story by Michael Maltese. This one tells of Bugs' efforts to get a little penguin home to the South Pole. The journey involves hobos, cannibals, crocodiles, Humphrey Bogart, and more. The animation is crisp and attractive with some great action. Love the colors. The music is exciting and fits the action well. The voice work is phenomenal. In addition to the incomparable Mel Blanc, here we have the talents of impressionist Dave Barry doing a perfect Bogart (he had previously voiced Bogart in 1947's Slick Hare). It's a hilarious short with an adorable character that doesn't get in the way of the laughs, as sometimes happened when Looney Tunes got too cute. The Bogart caricature, for me, is the highlight. Love those scenes.
