* GravityIsAHarshMistress: While Elmer is blinded by soap and reaching for the towel, Bugs tricks him into walking over a canyon. He wipes off the soap and admires the "quaint view" before he realizes he's in mid-air - and he can even run back to the edge of the canyon before he actually falls.

* AuthorCatchphrase: Of a creator who isn't even credited on the film: At one point Bugs turns to the audience and says "I do this kind of stuff to him all through the picture," a line Creator/TexAvery used in many of his cartoons. Avery is thought to have developed the story (see [[Trivia/WabbitTwouble the trivia page]] for more details), though he left before it went into production and Clampett took over.
