The best if the Cecil Turtle cartoons
6 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the first cartoon with Cecil Turtle that I have seen, and it's instantly been one of my favorite Looney Tunes shorts. It's also my favorite of the three Cecil Turtle cartoons.

When I first saw this cartoon, I thought it was weird that Bugs was basically a bad guy (like in Falling Hare) and actually lost. However, I thought it was funny and clever that Bugs dressed like a turtle while Cecil dressed like a rabbit.

I first saw this on TV, and due to censorship I didn't get to see the ending until this carton was shown uncut on The Bob Clampett Show. I won't spoil the ending here, but the ending is very funny (this cartoon is available uncut on the first Looney Tunes Golden Collection DVD, as well as all previous video and laserdisc releases).

All in all, this is my favorite of the three Cecil Turtle cartoons.
