Rootin' Tootin' Bugs... Red... not so much
8 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Buckaroo Bugs is a thoroughly entertaining Bugs Bunny cartoon. My only problem was that Red while he is voiced brilliantly and has some nice juicy dialogue comes off weak and silly as a character. Buckaroo Bugs is entertaining for primarily a rootin' tootin' performance from my favourite rabbit(or wabbit as Elmer would say) if there ever was one. Bugs is well supported by some rapid razor sharp dialogue, wonderful visual gags, great animation and a corker of a score with the William Tell Overture played to perfect use. And Mel Blanc? What can I say about this truly talented guy? I know I keep going on about him, but he does deserve credit for bringing these truly wonderful toon characters to life and and being funny in the process. Overall, near-perfect as a cartoon, that is lots of fun. 9/10 Bethany Cox
