Smokey the genie
21 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lackluster, I disagree. Jim Backus' genie did steal the show from Bugs in this one. It did have the required caricature of the Caliph and the Genie. Remember the 40's, PC was not heard of then.Too bad joke are no longer seen as jokes. As far as the portrayal of Iraqis, Iraq wasn't a country during this make believe era. Smokey had the best lines, "3 cheers and a tiger for me".Bugs correcting the caliph with, "bugs bunny's lamp". True wise guy Bugs Bunny. Who can resist those lines, and the standard, 'be-whoop" sound of the Warner Bros. I have them as .wav files for mail delivery and just fun. Smokey bathing in the lamp and romancing the harem girls were great scenes and Bugs and Smokey played off each other rather well. My all time favorite Bugs Bunny cartoon. Beats the later 70's and 80's Bugs hands down. Some of the great Mr. Backus' finest work. I think this cartoon also stands the test of time. I've tested it on my kids, all born in the 90's and they loved it and couldn't believe it's almost 60 years old.
