Bugs snapping the baton in two and discarding is a direct reference to Leopold Stokowski (whom Bugs is disguised as), who never conducted with a baton. Stokowski frequently conducted at the Hollywood Bowl and was a famous name in Hollywood during the 1930's and 40's. Today his most famous work in animation is that of composing Disney’s Fantasia.
