classically absurd
20 September 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Strangely comic, hard-to-articulate absurd 'toon. Maybe it's the bullfight announcer's boxing-ring patter: he narrates with only a routine, half-interested excitement while the matador runs screaming after the bull menaces him in an understated, mafiosa manner. Or maybe it's when the bull echoes your owns thoughts at seeing an insanely laughing, mocking picador (the picador alone is worth watching this). Or when the bull says with stereotypical latino machismo while eating Porky's hot tamales, "Hot?! Who's afraid of hot?" It sounds like a modern sound-bit slogan for Tabasco sauce. Classic bizarre early Warner Bros.
