Deja vu?
23 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bugs is adrift at sea in a barrel, reading a book and singing a song as though he hasn't got a care in the world. Unfortunately, he doesn't realise he's near an island in the ocean populated by ferocious gorillas, and when one of the childless female apes sees him floating by, she takes an instant shine to him being her baby.. despite the fact he has long ears and fluffy tale. How will her hubby cope with the news that he has a rabbit as a heir (ho ho)? You'll have to watch to find out.

This short has almost exactly the same plot as another BB cartoon (the name escapes me for now) but the execution is far weaker. Aside from a couple of pratfalls involving a coconut tree and a shovel there are hardly any jokes here at all, just a few aimless chases and a several uninspiring background gags (Like Tarzan crossing at the traffic lights). The question: If you're going to rework earlier material, why bother if you're just going to strip out the good stuff and replace it with dead air? I don't have a clue. But what I am sure of is, when this appears on my Looney Tunes DVD in the future.. my finger will be firmly be rested on the SKIP button. 4/10
