Bugs Bunny prototype before they got it right...
25 March 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I found this only vaguely amusing with the magic tricks being the only bonus feature of the plot. Perhaps because BUGS BUNNY isn't the Bugs we all came to know later on. He's sketched in with little character and never once says his famous: "What's up, doc?" Chuck Jones was clearly experimenting with the little rabbit and does have him playing the sort of pranks he would become famous for once he became a cartoon celebrity.

Animation is okay, the pace is very fast with numerous sight gags due to the clever bunny, and it must have appealed to children at the time.

Summing up: Not one of the better Bugs Bunny cartoons.
