Very Funny! Bugs Bunny Does It Again!
17 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hot-Crossed Bunny is another Looney Tunes Cartoon short starring our all time favorite, Bugs Bunny. If you ask me, this is another very funny one, that lovable Wascally Wabbit, Bugs Bunny does it again in this hysterical cartoon short! In only about eight short minutes, there are a lot of laughs to be seen! That's really something isn't it? That a cartoon short that is not even ten minutes long can have a very large amount of laughs! Oh well, I guess that it only goes to show how much I love Looney Tunes!

This is what the short is about: At the Eureka Experimental Hospital, a doctor plans to put the characteristics of a chicken into the brain of experimental rabbit No. 46, Bugs Bunny. And like a lot of other Looney Tunes Cartoon shorts that I have seen, a lot of chaos ensues, chaos that delivers a big amount of laughs, entertaining children, and also give the adults something to enjoy as well! I watched this with my mother, and she was having a good time as well laughing at it! In short, we both had a good time!

Hot Crossed-Bunny is another one of those Looney Tunes Cartoon short films that you will have to watch over and over again just so you can see how hard you can laugh at it! I laughed really hard at it, I laughed just as hard at this as I did when I watched the classic Duck Amuck! Do you want to watch a really funny cartoon, then watch Hot Crossed-Bunny, because it's funny, really funny, very funny, and even more funny! So watch this and enjoy it, because you will surely get quite a few laughs out of it!

10/10
