Storyline

Bugs runs into a balloon seller in the Golden Gate park and agrees to hold his balloons for him for a sec, while he ties his loose laces. However, the balloons lift Bugs up into the air and then the wind currents take over. Eventually, a stork carrying a baby kangaroo to Australia to its kangaroo mother, who's expecting, collides with Bugs and his balloons and ends up carrying bugs to the mother kangaroo instead of the actual baby, who gets carries away by the balloons. The mother doesn't notice the difference and puts Bugs into her pouch. However, a loud hungry light-skinned native tribal hunter armed with a spear and one trusty boomerang, shows up and notices Bugs.

"That thing could give you a conclusion of the brain."
8 August 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Bugs finds himself in Australia (don't ask how; it's stupid) in this tired Bob McKimson Looney Tunes short. While in Australia, Bugs deals with kangaroos and an aborigine hunter he dubs Nature Boy. The aborigine stuff is far less offensive than I'm sure it sounds. It's not funny, mind you, but not that offensive. Anyway most of the cartoon is Bugs going back and forth with the hunter. We've all seen it before and better. I like McKimson but he was one of the weaker directors when it came to Bugs. The gags aren't terribly creative or funny and none of the lines have any punch. To make matters worse, this is one of those Bugs shorts where he talks incessantly and every other character is silent or unintelligible. The voice work and music are nice. The animation is the best part of the cartoon. I really love the colors in this. It's a pretty forgettable effort but Bugs completists might want to take a look. Also worth mentioning the baby kangaroo that appears here is sometimes cited as a Hippety Hopper appearance, but I'm not sure if that's accurate. He doesn't really look like Hopper to me (the ears are different), plus he speaks and Hopper never spoke. I think it's just a generic nameless kangaroo character.
