The Bushrats Must Be Crazy is an episode of Taz-Mania directed by Gary Hartle. It first aired 14 Sep 1994.


The title and episode are a parody of the 1980 South African comedic film The Gods Must Be Crazy.


Taz and Jake are playing with Jake's rubber ducky and accidentally fling it into the woods. Meanwhile, The Bushrats fail to hunt down a cat so Chief Bushrat appeals to the gods of the hunt. Just then, the ducky lands beside him and they all start worshiping it as a god. Taz and Jake retrieve the toy, but The Bushrats follow them. A series of coincidences aid them in their journey and the Chief takes them as signs of the supernatural. He finally catches up to the ducky but before he can grab it, something grabs him; the cat he was originally hunting has returned.
