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.

Trivia

Due to pressure from Warner Brothers, this cartoon was one of eleven pulled from rotation by the Cartoon Network for its 2001 "June Bugs" marathon, which was to show the complete chronology of Bugs Bunny cartoons. This is in also the "Censored 11". Also All This and Rabbit Stew (1941) and Bushy Hare (1950) with Bugs Bunny, have been withheld from distribution since 1968. Reason given was the short may potentially offend African-Americans. "Nature Boy" was an Australian Aborigine. See more »

Unexceptional but has its moments
28 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bugs Bunny is one of my all time favourite cartoon characters, however I do think he has definitely done much better than Bushy Hare. The cartoon itself is not as bad as I was led to believe, but I didn't care much for the routine story and while some worked like the chase in the canoe and the sequence with the kangaroo a lot of the other gags fell limp for me not helped by pacing that didn't really come to life. But the biggest issue I had was the character of Nature Boy. And it wasn't just because he was a negative stereotype of Aborigines but also that he was very bland and the chemistry between him and Bugs was lacking. However, the animation is great, the colours look ravishing and the backgrounds are lush and detailed. The music is stylishly orchestrated and gives a crisp energy lacking in the gags and the pace(loved the use of Strolling Through the Park, a song that is growing on me all the time), while the dialogue actually manages to be very funny. Bugs bags all the best lines with "Look mother, that thing could give you a conclusion of the brain", "Get Me Outta Here, I'm afraid of the dark" and "Me and my big fat mouth". I personally didn't find the "Unga Bunga bit" all that funny though. Bugs is intelligent, arrogant and very likable, and Mel Blanc's voice work is stellar as always. All in all, Bushy Hare has its moments, but at the same time it could've been so much better. 6/10 Bethany Cox
