in the jungle, the rabbit jungle...
1 June 2005 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

A female gorilla is depressed that she and her husband, Gruesome, haven't had a child. When Gruesome growls at her, she runs away crying guessed it! She finds Bugs Bunny. When she takes him home, Gruesome decides to take Bugs for a walk, but then it turns out that the big guy wants to torment him. Naturally, Bugs has his own plans.

I think that my favorite scene was when Bugs shakes a coconut out of a tree, and it falls on Gruesome like a football helmet. No matter what, you can always count on that "scwewy wabbit" to do something great. Maybe it was Mel Blanc's voices or maybe it was something else (I would assume that it was the former), but those old Looney Tunes cartoons were always the best.
