One Of The Top Bugs Bunny Cartoons Of All Time
27 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bugs and an ice-skating penguin: now there's a new storyline. The penguins is part of the "Brooklyn Ice Frolics." One problem: the show closed and they left without the little guy! He wanders around and winds up falling into Bugs' hole outside the city.

Bugs freaks out: "It's a boid - a boid in a tuxedo!! Hey, playboy, what's the idea of crashing in here in the middle of the night and disrupting an honest rabbit's slumber?"

To make a long story short, the little penguin's tears get Bugs' sympathy so he takes him to where he thinks all penguins belong: the South Pole. They begin by hitching rides aboard a train, a la hobos, headed for "the Deep, Deep South."

Their adventures take them to the steamship "Admiral Byrd" and a few other spots. I won't divulge any more because there is still over half the story to go, at this point.

Suffice to say Bugs' is both funny and a very good protector of our little guy, who applauds every time something good happens. It's very cute and a really great cartoon overall with plenty of laughs and charm. Bugs adds to the humor just by the way he pronounces a lot of words in here. Having Humphrey Bogart make a guest appearance didn't hurt, either!

This is outstanding entertainment.
