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.

Bugs and 'Nature Boy'
26 June 2004 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Bugs finds himself from San Francisco suddenly in Australia, where he is brought part by balloons part by bird-who-delivers-babies-to-kangaroos (I'm not too big on nature, people).

In Australia he has an encounter with what seems to be an aboriginal, although Bugs is naming it Nature Boy. Rude and politically incorrect by standards these days, I'm sure, but keep in mind this was made 55 years ago.

Bugs and Nature Boy have a go in some chases (of which one of them, in a canoo, is pretty funny), but this short cartoon is obligate in every possible way.

Not that many good moments, really: 4/10.
