The cartoon is a travelogue through many different countries, with narration by Robert C. Bruce and wacky jokes and puns. For example, in one of the scenes, the Sphinx is shown, as the narrator talks about how the humongous statue does absolutely nothing, for many centuries. The Sphinx (voiced by Mel Blanc) turns to the audience and says, "Monotonous, isn't it?", a reference to the comedian Jerry Colonna. In another, Bugs Bunny helped his fellow rabbits shoot down a Japanese vulture.
The entire sequence of two hunters (caricatures of director Friz Freleng and writer Michael Maltese) getting captured by African cannibals and compared like cigarettes.
The final scene of the rabbits (one of which is Bugs Bunny himself) fighting back against a vulture (who looks like a World War II-era Japanese caricature) is cut to remove the actual shot of the vulture bearing down on the rabbits. It should be noted that this censored scene was shown as a clip on the ToonHeads episode about World War II cartoons.
The Turner "dubbed version" replaces the original 1941-1955 Merrie Melodies ending music cue with the 1939-1941 Merrie Melodies ending music cue.
This short was planned to be directed by Tex Avery, but was eventually completed by Bob Clampett, due to Avery's departure from the studio following creative differences over the ending to "The Heckling Hare."
Neither men are credited for this cartoon, as the Warner Bros. studio rules at the time forbade departing animation directors from being credited for cartoons and working animation directors for being credited for other directors' works.
