A good surprise. :-)
16 March 2009 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

This cartoon may be slow moving and dull for some, but personally I found it very entertaining and is one of my new favourites. This cartoon is one of the first with Bugs Bunny (this was made two years after his official debut) and the debut of a minor-ish Looney Tunes character named Beaky Buzzard.

This cartoon was a good surprise for me for the following reasons: 1. I was not expecting this to be nearly so old and I enjoyed the old-fashioned humour you have in a few WB cartoons, featured here. I think that the plot along with "old" jokes would work better than the plot along with new jokes.

2. I was expecting this to be quite a fast paced, slapstick cartoon, instead I found that hardly any of the jokes featured slapstick (as a whole, all WB cartoons have some slapstick in them) and there were some good verbal jokes inserted in too. It certainly kept my interest going! The other good things about the cartoon were the ever familiar Bugs Bunny in his trick mode (escaping baddies using clever ways) and the introduction of Beaky Buzzard and this was also my first cartoon with him in as well. I will certainly look out for more with him in. The animation was pretty good and overall, I found it a great episode. :-)

The cartoon starts with a mother buzzard (vulture to my fellow British) instructing each of her offspring to go and bring some meat back to the nest. She gives her babies serious challenges, such as horse and deer. However, one of her babies does not want to hunt at all (Beaky Buzzard), but he is pushed out of the nest anyway to go and find something. He ends up finding Bugs Bunny, who he is ready to hunt...

I recommend this cartoon to people who do not mind old, slightly slow-moving Looney Tunes. Enjoy "Bugs Gets the Boid"! :-) 8 and a half out of ten.
