Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, attempting to go to Pismo Beach on holidays, make yet another of their infamous turns at Albuquerque and find themselves in Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves. Things start to go downhill when Daffy finds a treasure that he has to keep to himself!
Bugs Bunny in Ali Baba Bunny
A cave entrance with two men outside it. Hassan, on the left is big and fat, while the small man to the right is skinny and riding a camel.
Small Man: Close Sesame
A large rock descends and closes off the cave entrance. The small man turns his camel to face the large man
Small Man: Guard well this treasure, oh Hassan, or the jackals shall grow fat on thy carcass.
Hassan: No one shall pass Hassan.
The man on the camel rides off into the distance
The small man rides away over the hills.
Evidence of something digging a tunnel across the countryside appears, approaches the cave entrance and runs into Hassan’s sword
Bugs Bunny (voice only): Ouch!
The tunnel now goes around the man, and into the tunnel
Hassan, very annoyed: Open, duhhh, Open, duuuuuh, Open, uh, Sarsaparilla? Uhh, Open Saskatchewan?
The tunnel enters the cave. Bugs Bunny exits the tunnel
Bugs Bunny: Well here we are, Pismo Beach, and all the clams we can eat.
Bugs looks around, confused
Daffy Duck emerges from the tunnel behind Bugs
Daffy Duck: What a way for a duck to travel. Underground. Hey wait a minute, since when is Pismo Beach inside a cave?
Daffy Duck turns and stares
Bugs Bunny, looking around: I wonder, eh, you know, I just bet we should’ve turned left at Albuquerque, then maybe a right turn at La Jole. . .
The scene pans out and we see untold wealth. Daffy’s eyes get very big
Bugs Bunny: Hmm, ah, hmm
Daffy Duck licks his licks and looks at Bugs
Bugs Bunny: Well, we can’t be too far off.
Daffy Duck looks evil
Bugs Bunny: So if we, uh-
Daffy Duck, hitting Bugs on the head: It’s mine! You understand! Mine! All mine! Get in there, down! Down! Down! (He is beating Bugs back into the tunnel) Go! GO! Go! Mine! Mine! Mwahahahaha! (He stops and runs towards the treasure)
Bugs Bunny, peaking out from the dirt: Eh, what’s up duck?
Daffy Duck rubbing his hands, staring at the treasure, then diving into the chests.
Daffy Duck: I’m rich! I’m wealthy! Yahoo! I’m comfortably well off, woo hoo!
Hassan is still trying to get the magic door to open.
Hassan: Uh, open septuagenerian, err, open saddle soap? Open, uh, Sesame?
The door opens and he stomps in
Daffy Duck, wheeling a trolley full off treasure out: I’m in the money, lot of the money.
Daffy Duck bumps into Hassan
Daffy Duck: Ah, red cap, call me a cab, boy, and be quick about it, I’m a heavy tipper.
The guard raises his sword and chops at Daffy’s head, where it rebounds off the diamond he is wearing, then the hat and diamond split in two and a hair on his head splits in two
Daffy Duck: Ah ha ha ha ha ha… Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!
Daffy runs away
Bugs Bunny, out of the tunnel, dusting himself off.
Daffy Duck runs in and grabs Bugs
Daffy Duck: Quick, quick, save me pal and it’s yours! Gorgeous isn’t it? Don’t be afraid, have it appraised, any place.
Daffy gives Bugs the diamond, who tosses it away, and then Daffy tries to get Bugs to move
Daffy Duck: Proud Punk.
Hassan walks through the tunnel.
Big Guard: Hassan Chop!
Daffy Duck, hiding up high: Yeah? Woah, woah, woah, chop the rabbit! HE brought us here!
Bugs is hiding in an hour glass shaped bottle, pretending to be a genie:
Bugs Bunny: Me genie, of the light brown hair.
Hassan bows before the genie
Hassan: Oh mighty genie.
Bugs Bunny: Release me and I shall grant thee a rich reward.
Daffy Duck, still hiding: He’s lying! Chop him! Chop him!
Hassan, shaking Bug’s bottle: Hassan release you oh master!
Bugs pops out and lands on his feet
Bugs Bunny: Thank you Hassan, now, wouldst thou like to have all this treasure for thy very own?
Hassan: Oh yes master, Hassan like, Hassan like!
Bugs Bunny: Very well
Bugs does a complicated dance
Bugs Bunny: ikity akity oop a azigaty zagity oop a a! Flippity Flappity Floop. It’s yours.
Hassan happily dives into the coins.
Daffy Duck, stomping over: Ikaty akity oop. Oh oh squeek a a . (He stomps away
Bugs is looking out at the desert
Bugs Bunny: I don’t know, I have a feeling that Pismo Beach ain’t quite this wide.
Daffy Duck, running away from the cave with a huge diamond on his arms: Help! Help! Help! Save me pal! Save me! Help!!!
Hassan runs after Daffy with his scimitar: Hassan chop!
Daffy Duck: Help! Waaaaa! Save me!
Bugs Bunny (to Daffy, from behind cover): Okay, back here.
Daffy runs behind the rock with the diamond
Bugs Bunny: What’s with you anyway?
Daffy Duck: I can’t help it, I’m a greedy slob. It’s my hobby. Save Me!
Hassan, running behind the rock with his big sword: Hassan chop!
Bugs Bunny is sitting in a tent with a rope pointing straight up in front of him.
Bugs Bunny, pointing up the rope (American Indian voice): Him go that away.
Hassan grabs the rope and starts climbing up
Hassan reaches the top of the rope, which ends in the clouds, and disappears.
Bugs pulls the rope down.
Daffy Duck, peeking out of Bugs’ turban: Is he gone?
Bugs Bunny: Yeah, I got rid of him.
Daffy Duck: Ah ha! (he jumps off of Bugs’ head and walks off, still in the turban) Oh boy! I’m rich! I’m wealthy! I’m socially independent! I’m secure! I’m rich! I’m rich!
Bugs Bunny shrugs at us
Bugs Bunny is standing next to a huge box of treasure, while Daffy Duck climbs up to make sure it’s secure.
Daffy Duck: There, I think that’s the last of it.
Daffy walks through the tunnel looking for any spare treasure.
Daffy Duck: Just a quick check to see if I missed anything.
He peers around a corner and sees a mysterious lamp
Daffy Duck: Hey, what’s this? Hmm, well, polished up, it might bring a quick 4 bits on the open market.
He polishes the lamp, and a green stream pours out
Genie of the Lamp: I am the genie of the lamp, oh master.
Daffy Duck: Oh, no you don’t, YOU WANT MY TREASURE! WELL, IT’S MINE! UNDERSTAND?! ALL MINE!
Daffy stomps the genie back into the bottle
Daffy Duck: MINE! DOWN! DOWN! GO! GO! MINE!
A burst of flame erupts from the bottle, and Daffy is blown off
Genie of the Lamp: Duck, you have desecrated the spirit of the lamp!
Bugs Bunny peers out, then sneaks back to his rabbit hole
Genie of the Lamp: Prepare to face the consequences!
Daffy Duck, walking away: Consequences, schmonsequences, as long as I’m rich.
The genie shoots lightening from his fingertips and Daffy gets zapped
Bugs Bunny under an umbrella eating clams at Pismo Beach.
Bugs Bunny, opening a clam: I wonder how that crazy duck ever made out with that genie. (He find a pearl in the clam) Hey, wadda you know, a pearl!
Daffy Duck, runs out of the tunnel towards the pearl, seemingly unaware that he is tiny (high pitched voice): It’s mine, all mine! You understand?! Mine, mine!! Go, go, go!! (Daffy grabs the pearl and cuddles it) Out! Out! Out! Mine! Mine! Mine!
Bugs Bunny: Oh, brother, oh, sesame.
Daffy Duck: I’m rich! I’m a happy miser! (the pearl closes over him)
