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.

Patriotism as it should be!
24 October 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

More of Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam facing off, this time set during the Revolutionary War (in the Battle of Bagle Heights; go figure!). As always, Sam - in this case his name is Sam Von Schamm the Hessian - tries to get Bugs but Bugs always outsmarts him. Much of the humor involves explosives (well duh, they're at war). I will say that some of the scenes drug on a little too long, but the whole end gag pretty much makes up for any shortcomings.

So, "Bunker Hill Bunny" may not be the best Looney Tunes cartoon ever, but it certainly has its moments. It's not cannon fodder (pun intended) in any way.

"If you can't beat 'em, join 'em." Well, there are certain groups whom I would never join.
