Facts about

The only cartoon starring Bugs Bunny that was directed by Arthur Davis.
There actually was a real Steve Brodie who claimed that he jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge in 1886 and survived. Even though the newspapers enthusiastically reported his story, there's no evidence that it actually happened. The fact that his name was used in this cartoon means that he is the only celebrity caricatured in a Merrie Melodies short who was already dead at the time.
When asked when he was born Brody says he doesn't remember. Brodie in real life was born on July 23. This makes his correct zodiac sign Cancer, which is located just to the right of "Lobo" sic, the selected incorrect sign on Bugs' spin wheel.
