Look into my eyes...
30 September 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

We've probably all been warned not to hypnotize people, as it could have a dangerous outcome. Well, after watching "The Hare-Brained Hypnotist", you just might want to hypnotize someone. This cartoon has Elmer Fudd trying to catch Bugs Bunny by hypnotizing him, only to have everything go a little haywire. I partly agree with a previous reviewer that the ending seemed like a little bit of a cop-out, but on the other hand, a cartoon couldn't really go on for too long or it would get tiresome.

So anyway, it may not be the best cartoon ever produced by the Friz Freleng crowd, but it's still very fun to watch. Ready to hypnotize anyone?
