"Its curtains for ya Rocky... curtains, see!"
10 May 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Bugs stars with Robinson and Lorre in one of the finest gangster cartoons ever!

As our story begins we find Bugs making himself at home in a large, deserted house. No sooner does he get to sleep than he is awaken by two mobsters returning from robbing the bank, Rocky and Hugo, who have claimed the old house as their hideout.

After they ward off the police through the use of a revolver and machine gun (Hugo appears to be having a little trouble), they count out the money. When Bugs seems to get the biggest cut of the doe, Rocky gets mad and grills him to make sure he hasn't witnessed anything that may get them into hot water. He soon decides that Bugs knows too much and asks Hugo to "take him for a ride", in other words, to do away with him. But surprise, surprise- Bugs returns from the outing instead of Hugo!

After some hilarious antics between the two (including an amusing scene where tough-guy "Bugsy" threatens to give an intimidated Rocky "the curtains") Bugs fools the mug into thinking that the cops have tracked him down and are coming to take him away. But after begging Bugs to hide him and going through several painful trips up and down the stairs while locked in an old trunk, Rocky realizes that he's better off with the coppers and runs into town, yelling for them to take him away from "that crazy rabbit!"

One of my all-time Bugs Bunny favorites and highly-recommended viewing for all!
