Bugs helps a penguin go home via New Orleans, Martinique, the Panama Canal and finally the South Pole. But the penguin's home is in New Jersey.
"8 Ball Bunny" has a double connection to Humphrey Bogart: 1) Bogart's character from The Treasure of the Sierra Madre shows up several times in caricature, begging money from Bugs. 2) Bugs, around 4:30, sings a song in calypso style summarizing the plot of the story so far. This is a parody of what the character King Moses regularly did in the radio series Bold Venture, which starred Bogart and Lauren Bacall.

The South American native's use of the word "bwana" (referring to the Fred Dobbs ) is out of place since it is an African term originating in the Swahili language.
