Did You Know?


This cartoon has been largely barred from TV showings because of complaints about its treatment of Inuit peoples, both in the (perceived) stereotypical way the hunter is drawn and when Bugs insults him by calling him a "big baboon" and an "Eskimo pie-head". See more »


Bugs Bunny: Oh, you again! Well, scram! You've already ruined my vacation! Why, I ought to bang you one on your little kisser.
[Penguin starts crying, his tears turn into ice cubes]
Bugs Bunny: Oh, all right, all right! Turn off the ice factory. There, that's better. I'm sorry, but what am I gonna do with only four days vacation left? Huh? Well, now what?
[Penguin whispers into Bugs' ear]
Bugs Bunny: What? You mean the days are six months long up here? Wow! If I stay up here, I won't have to be back to work 'till July, 1953.

Cutesy penguin
25 October 2004 | by (The Underverse) – See all my reviews

Not the Danny DeVito penguin I assure you.

Bugs is on his way to Miami beach but, like usual, he cannot read a map to save his life (it must be kinda tough to do underground I guess) and ends up in the South Pole.

After inadvertently saving the life of a cute little penguin from an Eskimo hunter (in the south pole?) the penguin becomes too attached to Bugs to let him leave. Though Bugs cannot bear to look into the Penguin's sad little eyes he shoves him away to get back to his vacation to Miami.

Only the little Penguin falls right into the hands of the hunter again and Bugs must use his old tricks of outsmarting and extreme cunning to save his life again.

Funny? Yes. Cute? Yes. But still not as many laughs as you're used to getting from Bugs.
