** In "Southern Fried Rabbit", Bugs gets past AxCrazy Yosemite Sam by doing a highly unfortunate impersonation of a banjo-playing slave.

* AwardSnub: Bugs' debut cartoon, WesternAnimation/AWildHare, was nominated for an Oscar in 1941 for best animated short, along side the [=MGM=] cartoon, WesternAninmation/PussGetsTheBoot (which featured the debut of WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry). Both cartoons lost to the long since forgotten, and [[TastesLikeDiabetes rather schmalzy]] cartoon, The Milky Way. While the cat and mouse duo would go on to win several Oscars during their theatrical run, it took Bugs 18 years to finally win the award. It ended up being the only one he would ever win.

* HilariousInHindsight: In 'Rebel Rabbit' bugs finds out that the reward for Foxes is $50, but the reward for rabbits is $.02. When he goes to Washington to complain about this, he's told its because Foxes are destructive, but rabbits are harmless... Maybe Bugs decided to prove them wrong by sending some relatives down under.

* CharacterRerailment: Some of Bugs' entries in the early 60s reverted him slightly to his earlier more hyperactive persona. According to Robert Mckimson this was deliberate, as some of the creative team thought Bugs had become too reserved and bland.

* SophomoreSlump: The second official Bugs cartoon, "Elmer's Pet Rabbit" is commonly regarded as one of the worst in the series, owning to Bugs's ''extreme'' JerkAss behavior, off-model use of yellow-colored gloves, a voice that doesn't sound anywhere close to his iconic semi-Brooklyn accent, as well as the sloppy timing that Chuck Jones's earlier efforts suffered from.
** In fairness, "Elmer's Pet Rabbit" is only nominally considered to be a Bugs Bunny cartoon. Warner Bros. slapped a "Bugs Bunny" title card at the beginning of the cartoon to quickly exploit the unexpected success of the previous ''AWildHare''. In actuality, both cartoons were in production at the same time using different variations of the goofy grey rabbit Looney Tunes had been using in numerous cartoons at that point. "Tortoise Beats Hare" is the more proper second Bugs cartoon.

**"Bully for Bugs" features Bugs attempting to burrow to the Coachella Valley for "the Big Carrot Festival" before he misses his left turn at Albuquerque and ends up in Spain. 50 years later, making a pilgrimage to a music festival in the Coachella Valley would become an annual occurrence for a lot of people.

* FandomRivalry: Bugs and MickeyMouse have been the face of two competing animation studios for decades and several pieces of satirical media have depicted the two as enemies... [[Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit even though they've been known to parachute jump together]].

* ValuesDissonance: "[[CensoredEleven All This and Rabbit Stew]]", and most infamously, "Bugs Bunny Nips The Nips". The latter even got the first "Golden Age of Looney Tunes" laserdisc set recalled when it was included on it, replacing it with Racketeer Rabbit. If you can find an unaltered copy of that laserdisc set with the Nips cartoon on it, you've got a nice collectors item on your hands.
