This is adorable!
27 October 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In my opinion, Frigid Hare is not quite one of Looney Tunes' best, but it is one of my personal favourites regardless and it sure is one of the cutest cartoons I have seen. The animation is simply beautiful, with all the characters drawn well and the Antarctic landscapes beautifully realised. The music as always is lovely, it still has energy but it is a little more poignant this time. The dialogue is witty and the story is well paced and is never dull. The characters are great too; the Eskimo is good enough and it was a wise decision not to use him too much while making him important to the plot-line. However Bugs is much better, with all the hilarious dialogue and rascally yet likable persona, and he is brilliantly voiced by Mel Blanc. Even better than Bugs is the little penguin, he is simply adorable, as he clapped with joy and cried icicles you couldn't help but feel for him. Overall, an adorable and lovely little cartoon. 10/10 Bethany Cox
