Not great but still fun
22 November 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bugs Bunny is adrift in a barrel, content to be sailing and reading until being rescued. He drifts onto an island where a childless gorilla with a time bomb of a biological clock finds him and takes him in as her child. Bugs plays along to placate her but finds that her husband is less keen on this new arrival.

The short here opens well with some nice wit, Bugs reading and relaxing in his barrel, the apes reading such classics as `apes of wrath' however the actual plot is a little off and sees Bugs just aping it up with his mother. After this we have a chase between \the father and Bugs which, while amusing, isn't the funniest thing you'll see.

Bugs is as good as he always is and he holds the short up well. The mother ape isn't great and the father is just too gruff and ignorant to be a good foil for Bugs – he reminded me of Taz and we all know how poor the Bugs/Taz cartoons were at times.

Overall, not a great short but has enough going for it to be worth watching.
