    Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck

    February 9, 1957

    Directed by Chuck Jones - Story by Michael Maltese - Animation by Richard Thompson, Ken Harris, Abe Levitow, and Ben Washam - Layouts by Maurice Noble - Backgrounds by Philip DeGuard - Film Editor: Treg Brown - Voice Characterization by Mel Blanc - Musical Direction by Milt Franklyn

    Practically a morality play, with Daffy playing Greed and Bugs Moderation, as they end up in the ancient Middle Eastern desert on their way to Pismo and try to deal with a Sultan's ransom and its bloodthirsty guard Hassan.
Funny Moment:
    Hassan has been charged with keeping people out of the cave, but does not know how to get in if there are intruders inside already. He tries various magic words to get the cave door to open: "Uh, open sasparilla? Open saddlesoap?" until he finally hits upon "Open sesame."
