Production Notes:

Contains some live-action footage, mainly from 1937's "A Star Is Born." Also contains a few shots from 1941's "Hiawatha's Rabbit Hunt," identified here as "Little Hiawatha."

Bugs (at least, his director, Friz Freleng) finally won an Oscar- for real- in 1958 for "Knighty Knight Bugs."

Due to pressure from Warner Bros., this cartoon was one of 12 pulled at the last moment from rotation by the Cartoon Network for its 2001 "June Bugs" marathon, originally planned as the first broadcast of the complete chronology of Bugs Bunny cartoons. The reason given was that it included footage from "Hiawatha's Rabbit Hunt," a cartoon Warner Bros. felt contained an offensive depiction of the Native American character Hiawatha.

This is the cartoon with the legendary "gay Bugs"! After appearing in drag as a fruit-salad-hatted Carmen Miranda, Bugs wins a gold "Booby Prize Oscar" (which resembles him greatly). Bugs hugs the Oscar and says, "I'll even take you to bed wit' me every night." The award comes to life, saying (in a deep bass voice) "Do you mean it?", gives Bugs a great big kiss... and puts his hands on his hips in a stereotypical gay pose.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
