* AwardSnub: Was submitted for the Oscars in 1952, but, despite being one of Daffy Duck's best cartoons, failed to receive a nomination.
* BrokenBase: While most consider ''Rabbit Rampage'' a rehash of ''Duck Amuck'', whether it's considered an equally good cartoon standalone, or an inferior copy is of debate to many. The differing target in each cartoon also applies into this; some thought WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck was [[ButtMonkey more compatible as a victim]] than WesternAnimation/BugsBunny who is [[ComicallyInvincibleHero usually in control]], while some thought ''Rabbit Rampage'' was more unique just for that distinction (especially since it worked as a perfect KarmaHoudiniWarranty of sorts for Bugs' role in ''Duck Amuck'').
* FauxSymbolism: Daffy is effectively having a [[Literature/TheBible Book of Job]] moment with "God."
* GeniusBonus: Daffy's lines while punch-drunk and hammering the anvil make up the first stanza of Longfellow's "The Village Blacksmith".
-->'''Daffy:''' Under the spreading chestnut tree, the village smithy stands.
-->''(the anvil is replaced with a large artillery shell)''
-->'''Daffy:''' The smith, a mighty man is he with large and sinewy--
-->''(the shell blows up)''
* ItWasHisSled: Is there anyone left who '''doesn't''' know that the animator turns out to be Bugs? Unfortunately, audiences in 1953 probably knew it was Bugs right from the start, as the lobby card (cartoon shorts' equivalent to movie posters) flat out [[TrailersAlwaysSpoil gives away the ending!]]
* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: The DS Game based on the short is a fun minigame collection that lets the players take Bugs' role in the cartoon.
* OlderThanTheyThink: Disney previously did the "character interacting with artist's pencil" in both ''Disney/SaludosAmigos'' and the "All the Cats Join In" segment of ''Disney/MakeMineMusic''. Of course, they didn't exploit the potential gags quite as much as as this short did.
** Technically he's in the whole cartoon, but Bugs Bunny is only seen in the last five seconds of ''Duck Amuck''.
** Likewise, Elmer Fudd at the end of ''Rabbit Rampage'', especially due to being [[TeamRocketWins his first victory]] against ArchEnemy Bugs.
-->'''Elmer:''' Weww anyway, I finawwy got even with that scwewwy wabbit!
* ToughActToFollow: Given how ingenious and genre busting ''Duck Amuck'' was considered upon its release, ''Rabbit Rampage'' is considered a lesser rehash, retreading the gags of the original aside from the rare distinction of ComicallyInvincibleHero Bugs Bunny playing ButtMonkey to Elmer Fudd for once. Overall, the thing is, the cartoons are both pretty much the same, and you can hardly enjoy '''both''' one after the other; some people saw ''Rabbit Rampage'' first and were disappointed in ''Duck Amuck'' as a result.
