A surprisingly dull and slow moving cartoon from Clampett
18 August 2008 | by (Lincoln, England) – See all my reviews

Bob Clampett's 'Bugs Bunny Gets the Boid' is not an example of the director at his finest. As a huge fan of Clampett's unrivaled wackiness, I was fully expecting to love this oft praised short but if truth be told I find it almost entirely tedious. The main problem is the character of Beaky Buzzard, who makes his first appearance in this cartoon (although he's called Killer here). Briefly touted as a new star in the making, Beaky proved far too annoying with his dopey voice (an imitation of Mortimer Snerd, the dummy of radio ventriloquist Edgar Bergen) and slow thought processes. This dawdling character sits at odds with Clampett's frantically paced directional style and his presence slows the cartoon down to a crawl. Warren Foster's script is also a problem since so very little happens. Far too much time is given over to Beaky's goofy reactions and a gruesome but overdone gag involving a pile of bones. Clampett's more aggressive take on Bugs Bunny is usually a hoot but he's very off form here because he's given so little to work with. The ending is also a little forced and results in the cartoon just petering out. When a script is so weak that even Bob Clampett can't save it then you know you've got a turkey on your hands. Or in this case a buzzard!
