Trivia

Beaky Buzzard's voice and mannerisms are modeled after radio character and ventriloquist dummy Mortimer Snerd, created by Edgar Bergen. Because of this, he was originally given the informal name of 'Snerd Bird' before he acquired the name of Beaky Buzzard. See more »

A First Of Sorts
28 June 2001 | by (Burbank, CA) – See all my reviews

This was Clampett's third Bugs Bunny cartoon, but it marks the first time Bugs Bunny looks like the rabbit we all know. Prior to this Bugs had a more oval head giving him a rat-like appearance. It was as an animator in Clampett's unit that Robert Mckimson developed the model sheet of Bugs that all the other units eventually used. In the cartoons of the other directors at this time Bugs looked pretty ugly while he kept getting better looking in the Clampett cartoons. This is also the first appearence of Beaky Buzzard, a Mortimer Snerd caricature. This cartoon is funnier than Clampett's first two Bugs films and the animation is pretty solid, especially Mckimson's. However, Clampett would go far beyond this one with such cartoons as What's Cookin', Doc?, The Old Grey Hare, The Big Snooze, and Tortoise Wins By A Hare. Overall, a good cartoon, though.
