Trivia

The Abominable Snowman character is inspired by Lon Chaney Jr.'s performance in Of Mice and Men (1939). This may also explain why he calls all other characters George. See more »

I wonder whether they knew about recent events in the Himalayas.
17 January 2007 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

In their tradition of coming up with any crazy plot, the Termite Terrace crowd sticks Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck in the Himalayas, where the two characters run into the Abominable Snowman (named Hugo). The big guy immediately tries to adopt Daffy as a pet rabbit, and Bugs helps with this. "The Abominable Snow Rabbit" brings up an interesting point. It seems like for years, our stereotype of the Himalayas was the Yeti - it's anyone's guess as to whether or not such a being really exists. Nowadays, there's of course the issue of the Dalai Lama. I wonder whether or not the cartoon's creators knew about the Dalai Lama.

Oh well. That's just what I notice. The point is, this is a pretty funny cartoon. It's not abominable at all.
