Storyline

While unwittingly trespassing in the royal gardens in search of carrots, Bugs runs afoul of the Sheriff of Nottingham, who tries to apprehend him for poaching. The royal grounds are, in fact, amply posted with "No Poaching" signs (one reads "Not even an egg"), but Bugs either didn't see or ignored them. Of course, Bugs sets out to endlessly turn the tables on the hapless sheriff, at one point talking him into building a six-room Tudor home in the middle of the King's gardens. The dueling pair are periodically interrupted by a fat, dopey Little John who proclaims, each time he appears, "Don't you worry never fear, Robin Hood will soon be here". In the end, the merriest of merry men does appear and it's...it's...oh, see it yourself. Bugs goes in disguise as the King, who then knights the Sheriff ("Arise, Sir Loin of Beef...").

Crazy Credits

Warner Brothers' best animation cartoons writer, 'Michael Maltese (I)' wrote Rabbit Hood (1949) and Duck Amuck (1953). The opening credits of both were almost written in Old English and each title is a reminder of John Hancock's special signature on 1776's Declaration of Independence. See more »

Ooh! I Hate Myself! I Do I Do I Do!
15 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is a hysterical scene in which The Sheriff Of Nottingham says this and begins to hit himself in the head with a hammer repeatedly, that scene caused me to almost have a heart attack from laughter. When he began hitting himself in the head repeatedly with the hammer he was holding, I was laughing so hard that no sound was coming out! In fact, I was laughing really hard at this whole short, it is hysterical, it is funny, it is witty, it is clever, and not to mention, that it is unforgettable, I thought that I was going to die laughing while I was watching this!

Rabbit Hood is one of those cartoons that you just have to watch over and over again to see that it truly is one of the greatest Looney Tunes Cartoon shorts that has ever existed on this planet! Bugs Bunny crosses paths with The Sheriff Of Nottingham in this short, and what happens? A lot of chaos and disaster ensues. There is also some live-action footage borrowed from The Adventures Of Robin Hood, which also really adds to the greatness of this already marvelous animated short film! When I watched this for the first time, I was hurting all over from all of the laughing that I was doing!

So what are you waiting for, watch this hilarious cartoon short whenever you have time to do so, because you will laugh your read end off at it! Get ready to see some very, no even better, some gargantuan laughs when you watch this. When I saw that the laughs in this short are huge, I mean that the laughs in this short are huge! When you watch this, you can expect it to be great, because it is great, you will perfectly see what I mean by that. So watch this hilarious cartoon and enjoy it, because most Looney Tunes cartoon shorts are hysterical, and this one is as hysterical as they come!

10/10
