* {{Bowdlerization}}: When the short aired on ABC, the part where Bugs and Playboy are captured by South American natives is edited to remove the part where one of the natives runs to warn the group of "Bwana" Humphrey Bogart coming and the other natives repeating the “Bwana” in terror. These were replaced with a reused shot of Bogart's feet (from slightly later in the scene) while the sound of the group shouting and fleeing was heard.

* ShortCutsMakeLongDelays: After Bugs and Playboy are captured by a native tribe in the South American jungle and put into a giant pot to cook, Bugs glares at Playboy and mutters, "You and your short cuts!" Keep in mind, it was ''Bugs’s'' [[NeverMyFault choice for them to walk through South America]] in the first place to avoid paying 25 cents to go through the Panama Canal, see ForWantOfANail.

The scene was replaced with a frozen shot of Bogart's feet while the sound of the group muttering and fleeing was heard.

* ForWantOfANail: Bugs and Playboy’s arduous journey through South America (see CapturedByCannibals and TravelMontage) could have been avoided had Bugs chosen to pay the 25 cent charge to go through the first lock of the Panama Canal (something that’s especially apparent today thanks to 25 cents being worth ''far'' less now [[TimeMarchesOn than it did in 1950]]).

Added DiffLines:

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: Somehow it didn’t occur to Playboy Penguin to try and tell Bugs that he was supposed to be going to Hoboken instead of the South Pole until they arrive on the continent.

* HostileHitchhiker: Bugs and Playboy hop on a cargo train and share the car with a {{hobo}} who decides to try to eat them both. Worse yet, the guy goes on a tangent about how eating Playboy is going to be a MercyKill, but when Bugs points out that a rabbit would be a better meal, the hobo just yells "I love rabbits, too!" and blindly charges at Bugs.

* AllForNothing: Bugs does quite a lot of life-endangering efforts to take Playboy to the South Pole only to discover that Playboy was supposed to go to ''Hoboken'' instead.[[note]] For context, the duo started in Brooklyn; Hoboken is ''less than ten miles'' from there, just the other side of the Hudson River from downtown Manhattan. They could have gone there on foot in a matter of hours.[[/note]] Bugs has a nervous breakdown right then and there.

* DownerEnding: Playboy is taken to the completely wrong place in the world, and Bugs loses his mind when he finds out. It's PlayedForLaughs, though. And it's likely Bogart will take Playboy back to Hoboken and get a reward for his return.

* BorrowedCatchphrase:
-->'''Bogart:''' Say, pardon me, Mac--\\
'''Bugs:''' But could you help a fellow American who's down on ''his'' luck?



* OhCrap: Bugs when he realizes that he accidentally shipped off Playboy to Brooklyn.



* SpitTake: When Bugs and Playboy arrive in New Orleans, Playboy is loaded onto the ''Admiral Byrd'', which Bugs assumes is bound for Antarctica. As he relaxes at an outdoor cafe with a glass of carrot juice and says he might stay on for [[ItsAlwaysMardiGrasInNewOrleans "the Madree Grass"]], two sailors at a nearby table comment on the departure of the ''Admiral Byrd'', bound for Brooklyn...[[note]] Ironically, since Playboy was born in Hoboken, he would have been almost home upon arrival in Brooklyn.[[/note]]

And so begins an extended journey as they hop a freight train to New Orleans (fending off a [[HostileHitchhiker hungry hobo]] who shows interest in eating one or both of them), where Bugs puts Playboy on what he thinks is a boat to Antarctica but which turns out to be headed for Brooklyn. After rescuing him from being eaten for a second time, they swim to Martinique, where Playboy builds a boat that carries them to the Panama Canal, from which they proceed on foot across South America, dodging [[CapturedByCannibals cannibal tribes]] and crocodiles before finally crossing the Southern Ocean to Antarctica. But there's something Playboy hasn't told Bugs about himself...
