The scene in which Bugs discusses his "several fathers" was written by Chuck Jones as a way to debunk fellow animation director Robert Clampett's claims throughout the 1970s that he alone created Bugs. Clampett's name is notably missing from Bugs's list. Also missing is Ben Hardaway, who created the earliest prototype of Bugs and was in fact the originator of the name "Bugs Bunny" (Bugs being Hardaway's own nickname), though in this case Jones later confirmed that the omission had simply been an oversight, and that he would have had no qualms about including Hardaway in the gallery.
Eat your heart out, Burt Reynolds.
During the space text-crawl, a space appeared in the word "ago" (i.e. a long [...] time a go).
Dedication on the end credits: "The Bugs Bunny Road-Runner Movie is dedicated to Dorothy."
The original 1980 VHS was time-compressed towards the middle of the film -- starting at the last scene of ''Duck Amuck'' and lasting until the end of ''Bully for Bugs''. This edit carried over into the 1986 release, which used modified box art, but the same video master.
