Storyline

As Daffy continuously watches Bugs television, when "Beat Your Buddy" (Daffy's all-time favorite), in order, the two contestants mentioned are Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny. Daffy immediately left Bugs' home to head to the station, but has numerous accidents. As Bugs gets to the building first, Daffy used a secret-weapon, to him and get to the top floor, from outside and injures both Bugs and Daffy. As soon as they are able, they head to the station a second time and Daffy is the winner. Seeing the big wooden million box, Daffy freely gave it to Bugs, before being informed the big wooden box contained 1,000,000 little paper boxes, that a brand new new one-dollar bill is inside each box, with a value of $1,000,000. Daffy then regretted giving it away, started braying like a donkey, in embarrassment, as it concludes. Written by 63x927is58401

Trivia

The "Million Box" prize (with 1,000,000 $1 dollar bills, 1 inside every box). The way the million box was created as a very large "wooden cube" is, there are 100 aisles of 100: from top to bottom, front to back and left to right. 100 x 100 x 100 = 1,000,000. See more »

Watchable but unimpressive
14 September 2015 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Lesser Bugs & Daffy short, made during the DePatie-Freleng period and directed by Robert McKimson. The plot involves a TV game show called "Beat Your Buddy." The premise of the show is that the announcer draws the names of two buddies and the first one to make it to the studio wins a prize. Not surprisingly, the announcer draws the names of Bugs and Daffy, who are watching the show at home. The two race to the studio, sabotaging each other along the way. The animation is colorful but flat with a sketchy style that I don't care for. The music, by Bill Lava, is generic and uninspired. The voice work is solid but I would expect no less from the great Mel Blanc. None of the gags are particularly funny and, worse, there are no good lines for Bugs or Daffy. The final joke is just dumb. Really this feels very tired and forced. I mean, it's just six minutes of your life so what's the harm, but don't expect much.
