[Penguin cries]
Bugs Bunny: All right, all right! If there's one thing I can't stand is to see a penguin cry.
Hobo: Me neither. Penguins is practically chickens. And I hates to see chickens cry so much, that I has to put them out of their misery.
Bugs Bunny: Eh, pardon me, Mac, but, er, rabbits is bigger than penguins.
Hobo: So they are, and I love rabbit stew!

One of my top 10
29 October 2003 | by (Kansas City, MO) – See all my reviews

This has got to be one of my all-time favorite Bugs Bunny cartoons, mostly because it's one of the first ones that we actually feel really sorry for poor Bugs. After coming across a lost little penguin who was accidentally left behind, he promises to help him find his way home... only to discover that penguins live at the South Pole! Bugs and the little penguin set off to bring the little penguin home, through starving hobos, a tax to cross the Panama Canal, getting attacked by a hungry tribe of cannibals, not to mention getting followed by a certain celebrity from The Treasure of Sierra Madre, they finally make it to the South Pole. However, Bugs discovers one tiny little problem: this penguin was raised in captivity in Hoboken, New Jersey!!!

If you're like me, you'll fall in love with that cute little penguin (who can resist melting when he cries ice cubes?) and laugh as Bugs strains himself to help him out. Definitely a classic to love and watch over and over.
