* DisproportionateRetribution: The entire premise of this cartoon. Bugs slaps Toro in the nose for "steaming up his tail", for that Toro headbutts Bugs into the sky, and then Bugs declares war on Toro and enters as a bullfighter.

This cartoon is also notable for a bit of history behind its making, at least according to Chuck Jones: Jones' supervisor, Eddie Selzer, barged into Jones' office one day and announced, completely out of the blue, that "bullfights aren't funny!" Since Jones and his fellow animators [[AntiAdvice worked from the assumption that Eddie was always wrong about everything]], their only choice was to make a cartoon about bullfighting.

bullfighting.[[note]]In his autobiography, Jones joked that his one regret was not animating the bull with a pair of gigantic, pendulous (but [[TruthInTelevision anatomically correct]]) testicles.[[/note]]

The short begins with Bugs on his way to the Coachella Valley for the "Big carrot festival, therein." but takes a wrong turn at Albuquerque and winds up inside a [[BeastlyBloodsports bullfight arena]], and becomes an unwitting victim of Toro the Bull and his horns. Bugs, indignant at this attack, immediately decides to turn the tables, taking up the role of matador and giving the bull his just desserts for the rest of the cartoon.

* GeniusBruiser: Toro. OK, maybe "genius" is an overstatement, but compared to most of the opponents Bugs faces, he's practically [[UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein Einstein]].
