Bugs is getting ready to conduct The Warner Bros. Symphony Orchestra. When he finishes his elaborate preparation, he starts to conduct. However, several problems plague Bugs' conduction, notably a bothersome Fly and some awkward cuffs that keep falling off. Bugs attempts to kill the fly, crashing into the orchestra and the instruments as he does so. As the music comes to a stop, Bugs bows for the crowd, and instead of applause, hears only silence. Bugs looks around to see that the seats are empty, though he does hear some faint clapping coming from the fly. Bugs bows to the fly.
- Leopold Stokowski - silhouette at the beginning
- This is the first short to be directed by Abe Levitow, as well as it being the Looney Tunes short to be directed by Abe Levitow, although it was also directed by Chuck Jones.
- Bugs conducts, and in part, plays the overture to "Ein Morgen, ein Mittag und ein Abend in Wien" (A Morning, Noon, and Night in Vienna)", a composition by Franz von Suppé.
- This short was used in the TV Special, Bugs Bunny's Overtures to Disaster.
- George Daugherty made use of the cartoon for his special concerts, Bugs Bunny on Broadway and Bugs Bunny at the Symphony.
- Though Mel Blanc was credited for the voices of all characters, there is no dialogue in the short. The only vocal effects made are when an audience member is heard coughing, and Bugs makes a 'shooshing' noise. This is the only Bugs Bunny short (other than "A Corny Concerto") where Bugs is silent (apart from the 'shoosh').
- Although not a direct remake, the short is similar in concept to "Rhapsody Rabbit", where it features Bugs as a concert musician, in this case as an orchestra conductor, upstaged by a pesky little creature, in this case, a fly. The fly from this short, as well as Cecil Turtle, the Gremlin from "Falling Hare", and the unnamed mouse from "Rhapsody Rabbit" are the very few characters who managed to outsmart Bugs.
- Bugs Bunny doesn't speak in this short.
- This short was blue ribbon reissued, however, the Color Rings were never altered, only the production code was.
- A music fragment for the final scene was left unused on the theatrical release. It appears on Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 1, Disc Three as a special feature as part of this cartoon's music-only audio track.
- The closing variant of "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down" plays just as the cartoon irises out, earlier than expected.
