Elmer Fudd has a laboratory?
22 November 2004 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

If it weren't for the presence of Bugs and Elmer, you might think this one came from the Disney or Hanna/Barbera stable instead of Warners'. This is a subtle, almost believable take on the Jekyll and Hyde story in which only the characters imaginations run wild. There is no Peter Lorre, no scary castle, just Elmer using the Junior size Chemical set at home. He is looking to create "the formula that will take a normal charactew into a devilish being". But come on... it's Elmer! All he manages to brew up is a potion that makes the dinker go to plaid (and that's the most far out thing that happens).

After his dog Rover proves an uncooperative guinea pig, Dr. Fudd takes out an old fashioned wabbit trap and Bugs, always the sentimental type, indulges him. The rest of the film is just a lot of misunderstandings, made worse by the convenient involvement by a bear who uses queue cards. The visual gags are really quite subtle and even Bugs remains good natured throughout, referring to Elmer as 'Doc' much more than usual (and not as a catchphrase either). However For a couple of more inspired takes in true Loony fashion, watch Friz Freling's "Hyde and Hare" (1955) or "Hyde and Go Tweet" (1960) instead.
