"Cut it out, Gargantua. I'm not an ape. I'm a rabbit. Long ears...fluffy tail...technically known as a rodentus rabbitus"
8 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While not the best of the Looney Tunes canon, Gorilla My Dreams is still a very entertaining cartoon I think. I agree the ending is rather abrupt and lame, and I cannot say I was a fan of the female gorilla, she doesn't do that much that is interesting.

However, the animation is solid and colourful, I especially loved how the jungle was animated. The music is lovely and has a lot of energy, Bugs's song at the beginning as he is sitting eating a carrot and reading a book in the boat is very amusing, especially for the lyrics. The dialogue is witty and funny, Bugs of course gets the best lines and does a lot with them, while the sight gags are good. Bugs of course is great fun, while the male gorilla was a decent foil, gruff he was but I think he was meant to be. Mel Blanc does a wonderful job yet again with the voices.

Overall, an entertaining cartoon while not the best. 8/10 Bethany Cox
