The year is 1886, and Sergeant Bugs is assigned to protect a U.S. Calvary outpost, Fort Lariat, from invaders. Yosemite Sam, accompanied by local Indians, attempts to invade the fort and fails on several occasions, aggravating the Indians. In the middle of a clash between the returning Calvary and the Indians, Bugs escapes into a hole in the ground, while Sam and his mule do not, and are flattened.
- On The Merrie Melodies Show, the entire sequence of Bugs Bunny shooting the Indians attacking the fort and singing "Ten Little Indians" as he marks off the number of Indians he's killed (and shortening one of the tallies after he notices that the one he shot was a half-breed) was cut.  Strangely, the Merrie Melodies Show airing of "Tom Tom Tomcat" kept in a scene that was similar to this.
- On Nickelodeon, The "Ten Little Indians" scene was left in, but Bugs' line, "Oops, sorry. That one was a half-breed," was cut.
- Due to pressure from AOL Time Warner, this cartoon was one of twelve pulled from rotation by Cartoon Network during its 2001 "June Bugs" marathon. Because of the dated references to American Indians such as use of the slang "Injun," the cartoon is rarely shown on television if ever broadcast today.
- As happened often with the DePatie-Freleng Enterprises cartoons, the same premise would be used again in a 1971 Roland and Rattfink short, "Trick or Retreat".
- Unlike that short, which had an uncut release on a full Roland and Rattfink DVD and Blu-ray and airs on MeTV occasionally, this cartoon has yet to be given a disc release on DVD or Blu-ray, and remains seldom, if ever aired.
