Oooh! I'm dyin'!
10 May 2006 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Bugs Bunny's peaceful sleep is interrupted by a stray baby penguin. Unable to turn away such a little cutie, with big, sad eyes, Bugs makes it his duty to take him back home. When he finds out home is actually in the South Pole he wishes he hadn't.

So begins a long trek south, through Mexico and jungles and mountains. It's quite funny and Bugs' antics are wonderfully amusing as usual. I'm not sure what the deal is with the hobo who looks like Humphrey Bogart but it's obviously a reference to a movie I've not seen.

Like the best of Looney Tunes cartoons, this one ends with an hilarious twist.
