A True Classic
11 December 2001 | by (Las Vegas, NV) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best Bugs Bunny cartoons ever. Period. Sure it's kinda violent, but what wasn't when I was a kid? (b.1957) I never had the urge to attempt to drown anyone or throw someone in a hay bailer because of it though. Todays kids are missing a classic. Thanks Tipper.
