** Played straight with his animator skills: his hand-drawn animated advertisement of Cassandra's upcoming act is what drives people to see it (that, and showing it on the drive-in theater in the middle of a regular presentation).

* GoingPostal: The opening animated sequence has the rhino being so distraught (and then enraged) by the bunnies' bullying that he pulls out a machine gun from a case (which has travel stickers from Beirut) and shooting them all dead. Hoops pauses the sequence and says that he's got too much dark crap in his brain to keep working on the project at the moment. Becomes a BrickJoke when the final animated sequence shows the rhino got a pretty happy ending, with a girlfriend and all... but is still angry enough at the bunnies that ''tossing a hand grenade'' at them is lighthearted LaserGuidedKarma.

* KickTheDog: The villain literally kicks a dog as part of his over-the-top characterization. He also likes to listen to lobsters scream as he boils them - with a stethescope, no less.
