Once again, as in 'Bugs Bunny Gets The Boid (1942)', Beaky Buzzard is sent out by his Italian-voiced Mamma to bring home something to eat. While his brothers fetch a milk cow (with farmer attached), a string of circus elephants (including a baby one brandishing a banner reading "I am NOT Dumbo") and a dog attached to a fire hydrant, Beaky manages to capture a baby bumble bee.

For the first minute or two, they could have fooled me.
11 July 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

As "The Bashful Buzzard" started, I thought that it was going to be a shot-for-shot remake of "Bugs Bunny Gets the Boid" for about the first minute. But when it started doing its own thing, I found it an OK cartoon, not great. Why is Beaky Buzzard - or Killer, if you want to call him that - such a lazy ignoramus? Who knows? They have to entertain us somehow.

I certainly liked the sight of Beaky bringing some of those things home. If I'd been that Italian mother of his, I'd have told the father (who probably would have been a godfather) that the son isn't fit for missions.

All in all, worth seeing. Available on YouTube.
