"Punchy"-y bunny....
25 May 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

TIDBIT - Rabbits never fight fair.

And nowhere is that more evident than in this classic "Rabbit Punch" where boxing fan Bugs jeers and heckles a boxing champion until he finds himself in the ring with the aforementioned champ to duke it out.

And anyone who knows what Bugs Bunny is capable of pretty much expects the champ to get the worst of the deal.

Director Chuck Jones makes a veritable ballet out of the antics in the ring and manages to make Bugs (naturally voiced by Blanc) and the champ (Bletcher) graceful, clumsy, victorious and beaten up badly in equal turns.

And granted, this is the only boxing match you'll ever see axle grease, bricks, cannons and trains used in.

Ten stars and a golden glove for "Rabbit Punch" and for our champ Bugs.
