there are in fact some things that make it worth seeing
11 December 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

OK, so Bob Clampett's "Crazy Cruise" contains some politically incorrect scenes. But I still wish to assert that it's at least worth seeing. A parody of travelogues - like "The Isle of Pingo Pongo" a few years earlier - it focuses on a couple of different places, with a joke each time, and a surprise appearance by Bugs Bunny supporting the war effort.

Granted, the gags are pretty hokey (although what else can you say at the sight of Veronica Lake?). In my opinion, Tex Avery was the best at sight gags; had he stayed at Warner Bros., he probably could have brought this cartoon to its fullest. But I still think that this cartoon does provide its fair share of humor for the few minutes that it runs. After all, it comes from Bob Clampett. Like I said, it contains some racist scenes, but I assume that these were not intended as hostility towards the people portrayed; the guys behind the cartoon probably had no idea that the images would offend anyone. So check it out (it just recently came out on DVD on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 5).
