Storyline

Daffy Duck arrives at his vaudeville theatre to learn that Bugs Bunny has been given top billing over him. A competition ensues with Daffy out to get the top billing he deserves to prove that he is the star of the show. However, Bugs seems to be the crowd favorite as Daffy can't seem to best him in dancing, a magic act, juggling or playing musical instruments. This pushes Daffy to extreme measures as he performs a deadly stunt in his final attempt to impress the audience. He drinks some gasoline, some nitroglycerin, some gunpowder, some Uranium-238, lights up and swallows a match, causing him to explode. The audience gives him the acclaim he deserves for his performance, but Daffy (now an angel rising to heaven) "can only do it once". Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The exploding musical instrument scheme is the same in three Warner Brothers cartoons. The musical score is "Those Endearing Young Charms". In order, they are, first is Ballot Box Bunny (1951), as Yosemite Sam tried to get rid of Bugs Bunny, with a piano. Second is Show Biz Bugs (1957), as Daffy Duck tried to get rid of Bugs Bunny, with a xylophone. Then in Rushing Roulette (1965), the rivals were Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner. Wile E. Coyote set up a piano, and after the Roadrunner played a 'sour note', Wile E. played the correct theme. The very same musical note, approximately the seventh note to the tenth note, is the note, that is not played correctly, every time and when correctly played, by the schemer, instead gets the explosion occurred to the note.
