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". —garykmcd

"Dance, if you're not a coward!"
Fun Bugs and Daffy short directed by Friz Freleng. This one has Bugs and Daffy both performing at a theater, where Daffy is upset to learn that Bugs is getting top billing. When he's told this is because Bugs is the bigger star, Daffy sets out to upstage his rival. A very funny series of gags follows as Daffy tries one thing after another to get over with the crowd. The animation is good, with bright colors and nicely-drawn characters and backgrounds (although the backgrounds are of that slightly sketchy, slightly off-kilter style that was becoming popular in the mid-to-late '50s). Excellent voice work from the great Mel Blanc. The music is bouncy and lively. This is a fun short that any fan of Bugs or especially Daffy will like. The Bugs/Daffy rivalry was rarely funnier than it is here.
