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.[[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]]

[[/note]] Jones' suspicions about Selzer's comedic sensibilities were, of course, correct - the short turned out to be, even today, one of Bugs' most successful and popular outings, hitting number 12 on Literature/The100GreatestLooneyTunes.

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. One of the few Bugs shorts where his opponent gains the upper hand at several points along the way.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Bowdlerization}}: Both CBS and ABC censored the climactic scene of Toro sliding up a greased ramp and, as he flies through the air, having a run-in with an explosive, the detonation of which is caused by Toro getting hit first by a bit of glue and then some sandpaper, which strikes a strategically-placed match, which lights the explosive's fuse. ABC would only show Toro sliding up the ramp and crashing into the fence, but CBS was slightly more careless: it would also show Toro being hit with the glue and sandpaper, as well as his dazed look caused by the unseen explosion.
** ABC also censored the scene of Toro accidentally blowing himself up with a round of explosive bullets.
