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 »
Now, then, the idea in draw poker is for you to try to get a bigger hand than I got.
[while Canasta is talking, Bugs takes off a glove, inflates it, and puts it back on]
So I deal five cards to the each of us, and we choose the best ones, and we draw some more cards, and whoever has the biggest hand wins. You win, see?
Cut it out, can't ya?

"You realize that this is not going to go unchallenged."
Bugs Bunny is tunneling to see his cousin in San Francisco when he hits his head on a large gold nugget. Bugs doesn't enjoy his gold for long as he's soon swindled out of it by a crook called Nasty Canasta (love that name!). Six months later, Canasta has used the gold to build himself a profitable casino. Bugs shows up and decides to get even with the swindler by taking him for all he's worth. A funny and nicely-animated short from director Chuck Jones. I liked how the action starts during the opening credits, something Jones did quite a bit. Since the cartoon's only 7 minutes or so I appreciate how he tried to get in as much as he could. I liked the villain Nasty Canasta a lot. Aside from having a cool name, he's voiced by the great Daws Butler. Bugs is in top form here, especially when in disguise at the casino. Some hilarious gags like 'draw poker' and 'bigger hand.' Just a fun short.
