Rabbit! Duck!).

    • A Corny Concerto was the only cartoon in the "classic" era to feature Bugs and Porky starring together.

    • Since A Corny Concerto has fallen into public domain, it can also be seen on various low-budget VHS cartoon releases.

    • A Corny Concerto can be seen on disc 4 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 2 DVD set and also appears in the documentary Bugs Bunny: Superstar, which is available as a special feature on Discs 1 and 2 of Volume 4.

    • The CBS airing of No Parking Hare edited the scaffolding scene to remove the construction worker holding the dynamite, the construction worker trying to light the dynamite, Bugs blowing the match through the pipes to ignite it, and the resulting explosion. The edited version makes it seem that the scaffolding fell because of its slipshod construction.

    • When No Parking Hare aired on ABC, the following scenes were cut:

      Bugs reads Edgar Allan Poe, the construction worker tries to chainsaw through Bugs' dwelling and ends up getting zapped with electricity when his chainsaw hits a fuse box.

      Bugs singing "There is no place like a hole in the ground". The worker is flying over the hole with a helicopter, drops a bomb as Bugs rises from his bed to turn the page of the sheet music, and gets blown up after the bomb bounces back to the helicopter.

      The construction worker building scaffolding made of pipes, climbs to the top of Bugs' hole with a stick of dynamite, and tries to light it, only to be beaten by Bugs who blows a match that detonates the dynamite stick and sends the scaffolding (and the construction worker) crashing down.

    • No Parking Hare is 7 minutes long.

    • No Parking Hare was released on May 1, 1954.
