Delightful Tashlin short with brilliant comic "acting" from Bugs, Elmer and the bear; Carl Stalling's music keeps things bouncing
11 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bugs Bunny obliges Elmer Fudd by stepping into his crude rabbit trap and letting Elmer take him to his laboratory. That was a mistake. Elmer is a mad scientist trying to create a formula that will turn a "normal character into a devilish fiend." He pours a test tube full of liquid down Bugs's throat, but after a tableau of agonized poses, nothing happens. Elmer is disconsolate, so Bugs cheers him up—by having him drink some of the formula himself. Circumstances trick both Elmer and Bugs into thinking the evil mixture has changed the other into a bear. But the bear is a real bear, and the two antagonists barely escape him unharmed.

This delightful cartoon features brilliant comic "acting" from Bugs, Elmer and the bear. Their sense of timing, their gestures and facial expressions are all priceless. Carl Stalling's music score keeps things bouncing happily along, always contributing mightily to the laughs and the excitement. Frank Tashlin directed a winner with this one.

This cartoon is available on the "Looney Tunes Golden Collection, Volume Three," Disc 1.
