I've watched 11 Yosemite Sam + Bugs Bunny episodes in my life, now I've watched this one and it is my favourite of the 12!
I particularly enjoyed this Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny cartoon for the following reasons: 1. Not only were there the slapstick jokes typical of cartoons with these two main characters, but there were also an unusual (for this type of cartoon) amount of witty speeches, coming from Bugs, which I really liked. This may not be a highlight to Looney-Tunes-Slapstick fans, but I LOVE wittiness in this cartoon series. 2. The slapstick jokes were generally unexpected, fast-paced and amusing and even the farce was enjoyable (which occurs in about the middle of the episode). 3. Bugs Bunny did well, as he usually does in YS+BB cartoons, he provided most of the humour in this one, including slapstick and speaking humour. 4. There are a few memorable scenes in this cartoon which you can watch and enjoy without seeing the whole thing (e.g the dancing scene and the card scene).
I cannot rate this a 9 or a 10 because a select few of the jokes were predictable and slapsticky, but this is little to quibble over.
Anyway, in "Bugs Bunny Rides Again," there is a huge gunfight going on in a town (reminiscent of the later "Drip Along Daffy") and Yosemite Sam steps into a bar with seemingly tough criminals, however they all cower when Yosemite Sam speaks. The newcomer manages to make everyone flee out of the bar, except for a bunny who is willing to oppose him. Will Bugs Bunny succeed in outsmarting Yosemite Sam..? I recommend this cartoon to people who enjoy Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny cartoons in general and to people who usually find YS+BB episodes too slapsticky and would prefer watching one with more witty jokes. Enjoy "Bugs Bunny Rides Again"! :-) 8 and a half out of ten.
