Storyline

Bugs helps a little penguin get home after the Ice Frolics show he was in is closed. They head south to New Orleans where the penguin gets on the Admiral Byrd, which it turns out is bound for Brooklyn. Their second attempt gets them to the Panama canal but they soon find themselves as the main course for a native dinner. They finally make it to the South Pole but Bugs too late just where home is.

Unlike some people on here...
30 June 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

...I didn't like this Looney Tunes short all that much. I agree with Lee Eisenberg, this is far from the best cartoon. However, it is very sweet and worth watching at least once, but only for the cute penguin. Bugs Bunny has a few lines which are quite good, but he is better in a great deal of episodes.

In this short, an ice skating penguin in Hoboken is left behind by the rest of his company when they leave once the show has closed down. By accident, he lands in Bugs Bunny's burrow (in the middle of the road, funnily enough) and the rabbit wakes up in a rather irritated manner. Seeing the adorable "pengi-win" crying at Bugs Bunny's approach, the kind-hearted rabbit decides to take pity on him and help take the wee penguin back home...

I recommend this to people who like watching Looney Tunes shorts with a cute penguin, a Humphrey Bogart spoof (He is quite good, even though I have never actually seen the real Humphrey Bogart) and for people who like meagre Looney Tunes episode (a.k.a light). Enjoy "8 Ball Bunny"! :-)

7 and a half out of ten.

P.S This short can be found on the same disc as "March of the Penguins", which is rather useful.
