Trivia

  • The theme music for WABBIT is the music score of Bugs Bunny's theme song "What's Up, Doc?" that played over numerous Bugs Bunny cartoon title cards of the early-1950s.
  • The Space Jam 2- disc box set of the special has a messed up soundtrack with loud music and new sound effects making it hard to hear what Bugs and Daffy are saying, similar to the mixed audiotracks seen on the bonus cartoons "Hop and Go"[1] and "Sniffles Takes a Trip"[2] on Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 6 DVD. And one scene from one of the clips "Scrap Happy Daffy" (where Daffy sings with his reflections from the mirror) was cut due to the inclusion of offensive racial caricatures of WWII such as Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, amongst others. The original 1990s VHS however, has the original soundtrack and the uncut version of the clip from Scrap Happy Daffy.
  • Both "Yankee Doodle Daffy" and "Fifth-Column Mouse", which were included in this TV special, were however under the ownership of Turner Entertainment via the sales of a.a.p. and various mergers at the time this TV special came out. However, since both cartoons are in the public domain due to United Artists' failure to renew their copyrights in time, these two cartoons could be used in this TV special without any potential legal issues.
  • "Yankee Doodle Daffy", "The Fair Haired Hare", and bridging sequences from The Bugs Bunny Show are the only footage sources that appear twice in this TV special.
