Oh those darn Hillbillies!
10 June 2004 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Banned cartoon this time takes a swing at those southern red-neck hill- billies, who talk funny and aren't too clever.

Bugs is being chased by two of these hill-billies, who happen to be brothers and are looking for some animals to kill.

The first part of this short film is nothing special, but in the second part things all burst out into a song, sung in part by Bugs and it involves a great dance by the three characters. When Bugs takes over the song he makes the hill-billies do these crazy things like dancing with pigs and stuff like that. Very good song, check it out!

Great fun, in particular in it's second part: 7/10.
