I do not find this sort of stuff entertaining, I find it interesting.
20 March 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

From a slightly historical point of view, this cartoon is quite well-worth watching. In the days that this short was made, children were entertained by this sort of thing. I find it interesting to see how children were entertained by cartoons, watching this to receive a basic idea (I have watched other cartoons to do the same, but mainly for entertainment. I found this more interesting than entertaining).

I also really like the first Bugs Bunny featured, in many ways I prefer him to the Bugs we know today. I like the way he is animated and I also quite like his tricks and personality - even if it is very mean.

For what else is in the episode, I particularly like the theme of magic tricks and the white dog with black ears - very cute. **SPOILER!! SPOILER!! It is very unusual how Bugs is outwitted at the end, but personally I think he pretty much deserved it, even though I have to feel sorry for him. SPOILER OVER!! SPOILER OVER!!**

At the beginning, a pound van is chasing two stray dogs. The dogs hide behind near a house and the van drives past, not noticing the dogs are gone. The house belongs to a magician and the dogs are "forced" in an unusual way. Inside the house, they meet a curious rabbit who can perform amazing magic tricks...

Recommended for people who are interested in the older Bugs Bunny, enjoy "Prest-O Change-O"!
