* {{Foreshadowing}}: Early on in ''Rabbit Rampage'', Bugs is shown to have an animosity with the cartoonist for unspecified reasons. This is before the audience finds out that the animator is [[spoiler:Elmer Fudd]].

** In fact, ''Rabbit Rampage'' goes one step further by having Bugs notice that [[spoiler:Elmer]] is the animator, as opposed to ''Duck Amuck'' where Daffy never noticed that [[spoiler:''Bugs'']] was the animator.

"Duck Amuck" is an incredibly [[PostModernism postmodern]] ''[[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merrie Melodies]]'' short directed by Creator/ChuckJones in [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1953]], in which WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck finds himself [[RageAgainstTheAuthor tormented by a sadistic animator]]. Seen as a large pencil or paintbrush coming into frame to make alterations, the animator screws around with the backgrounds, erases Daffy, paints him absurd colors, replaces his voice with random sound effects, redraws him as a bizarre four-legged creature, and so forth.

The short was an audacious experiment to see that animation could create recognizable characters; would Daffy still be Daffy if every part of him, appearance, environment, voice, were taken away -- which has since come to be regarded as one of the all-time great cartoon shorts. A couple years later Jones would direct a somewhat less successful Spiritual Sequel in "Rabbit Rampage", this time with WesternAnimation/BugsBunny as the victim.

"Duck Amuck" was the basis of a UsefulNotes/NintendoDS game of the same name, while the [[UsefulNotes/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem SNES]] game ''Bugs Bunny: Rabbit Rampage'' is based off of Bugs' cartoon.

* BaitAndSwitchCredits / FakeOutOpening: The opening titles and first few seconds of action (borrowing fonts and music from Jones' earlier Bugs Bunny short "WesternAnimation/RabbitHood") suggest a rather conventional, "Daffy as swashbuckling would-be hero" cartoon to follow, like "WesternAnimation/TheScarletPumpernickel". Then Daffy jousts stage left, the background disappears into whiteness, and the cartoon goes completely crazy.
