* VillainousBreakdown: Bugs at the end. After the mafia ruins his victory, he is so distraught he throws the whole mob off, screaming at them while tearing his costume, making it clear and obvious they got the wrong contestant. The mob suffer a subdued one from this revelation and ''shoot themselves'' for their loss.

Added DiffLines:

* FreezeFrameBonus: The newspaper about the race has a smaller article which reads "Hitler commits suicide".


* OneDimensionalThinking: The mob exploits this by hastily painting a road stripe into a brick wall, which veers Bugs off the road into a head-on collision, and the mob uses this chance to stall him for time.
* AsideGlance: While waiting for Cecil to open the door, Bugs briefly looks at the audience and pulls off his beard as if to say "It's me in disguise, folks!"



* BeardnessProtectionProgram: Bugs wears a fake beard when asking Cecil for the secret of his win. Cecil recognizes him, but plays along.

Added DiffLines:

* TooDumbToLive: The rabbits who mistake Bugs for Cecil. They refuse to believe Bugs, thwart his victory and help Cecil (who is wearing a PaperThinDisguise of a rabbit) cross the finish line. That said, they end up ''[[DrivenToSuicide not]]'' [[DrivenToSuicide living at the end]].


Added DiffLines:

* YouFool: Bugs to the rabbits after they prevent him from winning.

Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInJerkass: Bugs is downright nasty in this cartoon, and is one of the very few times in the franchise ("Elmer's Pet Rabbit being another notable instance) where he's portrayed as such, a stark contrast to his typical characterization.
