Facts about

In animation historian Jerry Beck's 1994 poll of animators, film historians and directors, this cartoon was rated the second greatest cartoon of all time.

Bugs Bunny needed to be used at the end, because no other character had any kind of antagonism with Daffy (acquired by Bugs over the course of the Hunting Trilogy in Rabbit Fire, Rabbit Seasoning and Duck! Rabbit, Duck!) and Elmer Fudd is not a competent enough character - an ironic point considering the next year Elmer Fudd gets his animator's shots at Bugs Bunny in Rabbit Rampage.
