The Highest Explosive Effects in a Looney Tunes episode
13 January 2010 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

Buccaneer Bunny features Yosemite Sam's second encounter with Bugs after their premiere in Hare Trigger(1945). In Hare Trigger Sam was more advantageous to Bugs, as a train robber, where Bugs was a passenger. Provided that with Buccaneer Bunny, Sam as a pirate, he has a lot to worry about. Sam's sore points give Bugs a chance to twit him every time.

At the beginning, Sam was burying his pirate treasure to a deserted island, where he comes across to Bugs putting on the jewels taken out of the treasure chest. When Sam takes back his treasury from Bugs, he tends to carry the treasure to a different island. But Bugs never lets him to do so. Leaving Sam alone in the island, Bugs takes the oars of Sam's rowboat, and swims to the pirate ship. Following him, Sam swims for the oars. He takes back the oars, then swims back to the island to take the rowboat and to row it back to his ship. It was Sam's prevailing mastermind that he cares more about his rowboat than his treasure chest. Later on, Sam starts to worry about his pirate ship; he leaves the treasure in the island, and goes to ship for not allowing Bugs to cause any trouble.

First stealing his treasure, then blowing up his pirate ship; Bugs plays Sam's biggest menace in a masterly manner. He takes Sam into his service as a call-boy, masquerading a famous captain. The memorable moments of this episode are how Bugsy hides cannon fires behind doors, behind cabinets, above conning towers, within rabbit holes... Wherever Sam looking for Bugs, he's having detonating cannon balls to his face over and over again.

These must be the highest explosive effects in a Looney Tunes episode. More than half the length of the time Sam appears in charcoal dust. Every explosive effect brings a laughter effect beside it. This episode is available in the MGM/UA video of Starring Bugs Bunny and Friends (1990).
