Storyline

Bugs Bunny takes the wrong turn at Albuquerque and ends up tunneling into Scotland (!). There he immediately attacks a horrible monster engulfing a defenseless old lady. Only it turns out the "monster" is a set of bagpipes and the "old lady" is a man in a kilt. Bugs thinks this is indecent and throws a barrel over the Scotsman. This is too much, and the angry Scotsman tries to blow out Bugs's brains. Soon the two opponents settle the matter more civilly - with a game of golf. Bugs's golfing strategy leaves most of his scruples buried under a divot. The infuriated Scotsman suggests one more contest, again underestimating the quick-witted bunny. Written by J. Spurlin

Scottish
8 November 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

Though this Looney Tunes episode has a great deal of stereotypical Scottish things featured, it is good all the same (the Scottish seem to love being their stereotypes for some reason, so it is OK that they do do it this way.)

In "My Bunny Lies Over the Sea", Bugs Bunny is yet again trying to reach a place by going underground - and, as usual, he takes the wrong turn at Alberquerque - and ends up in the Highland of Scotland! He angers the first Scotsman he sees by ruining his bagpipes - and the Scotsman challenges the rabbit to a game of golf.

The only mediocre thing about the episode was the predictability of the game of golf. The backgrounds, the other jokes (there are some very good verbal jokes here towards the end which are hard to catch) and the Scottishness about it were all brilliant. I also loved the background of Loch Lomond - very detailed for a Looney Tunes episode and quite true. Wonder if the Termite Terrace team went to Scotland before doing this episode...

I recommend this episode to people who love Scotland, Bugs Bunny and Looney Tunes. Enjoy "My Bunny Lies Over the Sea"! :-)
