Very nice
26 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am a big Looney Tunes fan, and I liked this quite a bit. While the story rather standard, the cartoon a little too short and the sound quality(mind you I did see it on YouTube) muffled, The Unruly Hare was very nice and enjoyable. The cartoon starts off with a very well drawn sequence, and while not as colourful or as vibrant as I have known it to be, the colours and backgrounds are detailed and you can see some of McKimson's features in Bugs. The music is wonderful, the background scoring is typical Carl Stalling, energetic and quirky, and the recurring theme heard at the beginning and repeated quite a few times by Elmer was quite infectious. The writing is very witty and funny, especially "so, I'm a big fat rat" "Ah! have some cheese, rat", and the sight gags are also very amusing. Bugs is still as crafty and as witty as before(loved his impression of I think Jerry Colonna towards the end), and Elmer while more ruthless than usual is still lovable. Mel Blanc and Arthur Q.Bryan are also wonderful as they consistently are. All in all, enjoyable. 7/10 Bethany Cox
