Very funny, quite verbal short with possibly the lowest wattage bulb Bugs ever crossed carrots with!
20 October 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

The giant in this one has got to be the dumbest adversary Bugs has ever faced. Even Beaky Buzzard is brighter. However, lost in all this is the fact that the giant is actually the aggrieved party here. Bugs is stealing from his garden in the beginning. Granted, Bugs is our hero and the giant isn't the shiniest pebble in the pond, but there are property rights to consider.

This is mostly verbal gags, with a few sight gags involved for timing purposes, I'd expect. Lots of very funny gags here, with the obligatory reference gags to World War II here, naturally. The duel between Bugs and the giant is beautifully executed and the closing sequence is great! Well worth watching. Most recommended.
