    Bugs tunnels into the middle of a bullfight arena just as the bull makes short work of the matador, and takes on the beast himself.
Best Moment:
    The bull runs too fast and ends up far into the countryside. As he is running back, Bugs sets up a trap so that the bull, upon re-entering the arena, slides in axle grease, flies off a ramp, flies over a brush that puts glue on his stomach, then sandpaper, which lights a match that sets off a fuse connected to TNT that manages to go off just as he is flying over. A great ending to the cartoon.
