This cartoon features Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny competing to see who can climb the Schmatterhorn[nb 1] first and win 50,000 kronkites.[nb 2] Instead, Yosemite ends up climbing the Eiffel Tower after a series of mountain climbing gags, to the sound of band music.
A running gag in the cartoon is that every time Sam falls off the mountain and starts over, the band starts playing the send-off tune and the crowd beings cheering again, as if he never started. The band also appears on the Eiffel Tower after Sam and Bugs find themselves there, and they play the song one last time, continuously into the "That's all Folks!" end titles.

- This is one of the rare post-1937 Warner Bros. cartoons to have music from the cartoon playing past the iris-out or fade out through to the end card; this was common in MGM cartoons, but rare in Warner
