  • Has someone stolen the soundtrack and excitement in this show? This episode especially faces pacing and story driven problems.

  • Quotes (3)

    • Sam: What do you want, rabbit?
      Bugs: Just wanting to remind you about tonight's dinner party.
      Sam: You mean the "let's all forget about the horrible things Daffy Duck has done party"? Yeah, I'll be there... Unless I get a better offer.
      Daffy: I've got an offer for you. Gimme back my paper!
      Sam: Yosemite Sam is a lot of things; a liar, a cheater, a false witness, a sore loser, a bad friend, a shaded businessman, a blamer, a flimflamer, a hornswaggler, I'm cheap and I steal things, but I am no thief!

    • Granny: Is this the bathroom?
      Daffy: (offscreen) NO! GO HOME!

    • Singer: Oh there's a rumble in the backyard
      It's a shakin' twistin' cloud
      Seems someone's pet is getting way upset
      Something awful loud
      He just swallowed up his doghouse
      Knocked a barbecue into space
      Then he sucked up Bugs' swimming pool
      Spit out a tidal wave
      Tasmanian Meltdown comin'
      There's a meltdown comin'
      Well, you better start a-runnin'
      When the ground starts hummin'
      There's a meltdown comin'
      I don't know what sets him off
      Taz: I don't know.
      Singer: Is he upset about a girl?
      Taz: No!
      Singer: It's anyone's guess
      'Cause he's not the best
      Communicator in the world
      Taz: Don't judge me.
      Singer: We'd love to get him to settle down
      But he just scratched through the wall
      He got the police chasing after him
      'Cause he's headed for the mall
      Tasmanian Meltdown comin'
      Like a hurricane comin'
      (Taz melodically-shouting indistinctly)
