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

even an above average Bugs short for McKimson means a below standard one for everyone else
3 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Th Easter Bunny comes down with a bout of the sickness so Bugs Bunny (no relation) offers to deliver the eggs to an ungrateful brat of a kid, as well as Elmer Fudd in disguise. As those who know me can attest to, I'm not a big fan of McKimson directed Bugs shorts (to put it mildly( And for good reason as most of said shorts were sub-par and not nearly as good as any of the rest of the Bugs cartoons. I would've been happy if McKimson just stayed making Foghorn Leghorn films, but being a Looney Tunes fad, it's just a sad matter of life that you'll going to have to sit through these sooner or later. For a Mckimson short it's good but it's still nothing compared to other non-McKimson directed ones. This animated short can be found on Disk 1 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 3 set.

My Grade: C+
