Very clever
8 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As an avid Looney Tunes fan, this was throughly enjoyable and clever. While perhaps a tad too short with an abrupt ending, The Hare-Brained Hypnotist was simply great fun.

The animation is really good, with beautiful crisp backgrounds and lavish colouring. The music is wonderful too, from the haunting opening credits from the rousing and playful motifs that crops up every now and again, it is a mighty fine orchestral score. The story is pretty dark in tone in comparison to other Looney Tunes cartoons, but has enough amusing moments, thanks to some funny, witty dialogue typical Looney Tunes fashion and some clever sight gags. Bugs is a lot of fun yet again and Elmer is a great foil, and both characters are superbly voiced by Mel Blanc and Arthur Q. Bryan.

Overall, very clever and fun. 9/10 Bethany Cox
