Artwork, Puns Best Part Of This 'Toon
19 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bugs, floating in a barrel in the ocean but unperturbed by it all, washes ashore on "Bingzi- Bangzi - Land of the Ferocious Apes."

After some beautiful artwork showing the jungle, we come across some apes lying around reading books with titles such as "Apes Of Wrath" and "Our Vines Have Tender Apes." That's one feature I love with these Looney Tunes cartoons: the writers loved puns, as I do.

Like Moses in the brush, Bugs is picked up by a woman (in this case, gorilla) who is thrilled at the prospect of caring for a new "baby."

This cartoon, which is part of the Golden Collection Volume Two, shows Bugs' "soft spot," as he puts it: dames crying, so if the female thinks he's hers, well, to keep her from crying any more, Bugs "goes along with the gag." What ensues is mostly funny, from the sight gags - Bugs in a pink baby outfit, and then pretending to be an ape - to his battles with the father ape "Gruesome."

The only lame part was the ending. Actually, I enjoyed the fabulous artwork in here with amazing jungle drawings, best of all, along with the puns in the beginning.
