Storyline

Yosemite Sam, as Sam von Schpamm the Hessian, attacks Bugs Bunny's fort during the Battle of Bagel Heights in the American War of Independence.

very fun
2 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yosemite Sam battles it out with Bugs Bunny in the little known "Battle of Bagel Heights" in the American War of Independence. I've seen this one on TV so often growing up that I could quote the whole thing word for word by the time I was nine. My head tells me there are way better Looney Tunes shorts out there, but my heart tells me that this is one of the most fun. My heart wins out for the most part and this short never fails to bring a smile upon my face no matter what mood that I'm in. This animated short can be found on disc 4 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 1.
