Bully for Bugs

Bugs finds himself burrowing into the middle of a bull ring during a fight while trying to locate a carrot convention. He then finds himself being struck after an encounter by the ring's bull. Then he starts his plan of retaliation, donning a matador's outfit, and plenty of wily tricks, he proceeds to outwit and bamboozle the "Gulla-Bull" into submission.

The idea for this short came about when the studio's producer suddenly told Chuck Jones not to make any bullfight cartoons because there was "...nothing funny" about them. Knowing that they boss was never right about anything humorous, Chuck Jones decided to go ahead and make the short. Originally he intended to take on the short from the bull's point of view, but after seeing the small matador up against the massive bull, he decided against it and made the bull a foil for Bugs.
