Storyline

The lazy Easter Bunny tricks our redoubtable Bugs into delivering his eggs for him. Bugs Bunny is happy to do it until he encounters a nasty little toddler who sucks a pistol for a pacifier. After nearly getting killed by the boy's hillbilly family, Bugs tries to give the eggs back to the Easter Bunny, who whines some more and gets Bugs to continue with the job. Elmer Fudd is eagerly awaiting the Easter Bunny: he wants "Easter Wabbit stew." Bugs will thwart Elmer by cuddling him in the Tunnel of Love, performing a magic act on his watch, and sending the sadistic brat to beat him on the head. Then Bugs will realize it's time to take revenge on the Easter Bunny. Written by J. Spurlin

If you ignore the inconsistency to Elmer's character, it is quite fun
13 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Easter Yeggs isn't among the best, but it is very funny and a pleasant enough themed cartoon. I can understand why people mayn't like it, although I was personally satisfied by the ending it is very shocking all the same, and Elmer's character here has an inconsistency that he hunts for food here.If you ignore the inconsistency or at least try to, Easter Yeggs is quite fun. The story is simple but engaging enough, and there are many funny and quotable lines in the dialogue. The animation is crisp and smooth with beautiful colours and the music is lively. I feel this is an instance when the dialogue is better than the sight gags, but most of the sight gags do work, and the voice work is terrific as per usual.Overall, a nice cartoon. 8/10 Bethany Cox
