Synopsis

Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are rival book salesmen from Rambling House. They each go their separate ways to sell books to folks, Daffy finds himself encountering Elmer Fudd, Porky Pig, and Hassan, while Bugs outwits some gorillas and helps Daffy escape from Hassan. Soon enough, as Daffy stays behind to collect the treasures from the cave, Bugs gets forced by Sultan Yosemite Sam to tell stories to his spoiled-brat son, Prince Abba-Dabba. Bugs and Daffy's Adventures and the stories that Bugs narrates are shown through clips of old Warner Bros. Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons.

Apes of Wrath (Bugs' line, "So I'll be a monkey", is replaced with, "I'll sell books later")
Wise Quackers (The opening where Daffy is flying and crash-lands like a plane on a farm and encounters Elmer. The rest of the cartoon was cut for a different scene for the movie.)

Bewitched Bunny (ends abruptly after the prince takes his leave)

One Froggy Evening (the ending set in the future is not shown)
Aqua Duck (The Last cartoon of the movie that was used wasn't entirely used as it was cropped down to the point where Daffy realizes a pool of water is a mirage)

Trivia

  • The main plot point, setting up Bugs and Daffy as Scheherazade-like figures, is in itself similar to the 1959 short Hare-Abian Nights, which itself used considerable stock footage and also featured Yosemite Sam as the sultan.
  • The Character Prince Abba-Dabba, may be based on the Junior character from "A Waggily Tale".
  • The original 1983 VHS release and early television airings (like the Disney Channel in the 90's) of the film had one sequence that was cut on its 2001 VHS and current television airings for time constraints. It took place after Bugs finished reading the story of Goldimouse and the Three Cats to Prince Abba-Dabba, he told the next story to Abba-Dabba, Little Bo Peep which featured the 1962 Ralph Wolf and Sam Sheepdog cartoon A Sheep in the Deep.
