Mr. Howell years before he met Jeannie
2 July 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Before Jim Backus voiced Mr. Magoo or played Thurston Howell III, he provided his voice to Robert McKimson's Bugs Bunny cartoon "A-Lad-in His Lamp", in which Bugs finds Aladdin's lamp and releases the genie (Backus). They both return to Baghdad, where evil Hassan Pfeffer - living in a palace built by GI loans - wants the lamp and will stop at nothing to get it. And it turns out that the genie isn't so eager to help Bugs.

Obviously, it's a little harder to laugh at this cartoon given everything that's happened in the real Baghdad (and the rest of Iraq) during the past few years. But the cartoon itself is sure a hoot. It just goes to show that, contrary to his detractors, Robert McKimson did in fact turn out some good work as a director. I recommend it, and I wouldn't mind getting what Bugs gets at the end.

Veronica Lake, Turhan Bay, and Persian-to-Persian. Ha! PS: Jim Backus later guest-starred on an episode of "I Dream of Jeannie".
