Bugs is parachuted into Tasmania by mistake, giving "Taz Boy" the home court advantage.
Bugs gets out of being eaten by Taz by promising to
"cook ya up a batch" of Wild Turkey surprise. As he makes a "dynamite" turkey, he sings, "Atsa matta, atsa matta, hey! Atsa matta fer you. You eatta my ravioli and my pastapazoola too. You no eatta my cacciatore and my pizza that's good to chew. Atsa matta you no like-a me, well, atsa matta fer you."
