The winning hand that Bugs has in the climatic poker game with Nasty Canasta that he describes as a "Two Pair. A Pair of Ones and another Pair of Ones." That result is called a Quad of Aces, the highest value of a Four of a Kind that can only be topped by a Straight Flush or a Royal Flush. See more »
Early in the cartoon, Bugs is tunneling his way to San Francisco when he hits his head on a rock. As he lifts and rolls it out of his way, the background is visible through it, and it becomes apparent that only the rock's outline has been painted. The error is only noticeable for a few frames, when the rock overlaps a part of the background that isn't the same green as the surrounding grass. It's likely it was meant to be filled in with the same green as the grass; because it looks filled in when it's over that area, this is probably the reason for the error. See more »

During the credits we are treated to some nice landscape shots of Bugs tunneling away to visit his cousin Herman in San Francisco. His travels are cut short when he bumps into a big lump of gold. That was the most enjoyable part of "Barbary Coast Bunny". Almost immediately after this Bugs gets coined out of this fortune by a suitable loathsome villain named Nasty Canasta. Next we cut to San Francisco, six months later, where Nasty is about to open a saloon on Barbary coast road. Apparently it has taken Bugs all this time to catch up with Canasca and to set up his revenge. Naturally Nasty fails to recognize the Bugster because of his brilliant disguise: a suit and tie and a bowler hat
Bugs spends the rest of this cartoon winning back his money at Nasty's slot machine, and all subsequent card games Canasta throws at him. But since he simply wins every single time, the games soon become tiresome and the victories hollow. There are no obstacles for Bugs to overcome at all, his disguise is never even blown. This cartoon has only two characters, two locations and two jokes. After the opening, not much effort seems to have been spent on backgrounds and animation, as if they ran out of money after the first minute or so.
