WHY IS THIS NOT ON VIDEO????
28 December 2001 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

This cartoon is, without a doubt, the all-time FUNNIEST, most CLASSICALLY LOONEY Bugs Bunny cartoon EVER! IMHO, it even eclipses "What's Opera, Doc?" for sheer, unadulterated comic genius! I first saw this short when I was a kid, and now every time I hear the real "Barber of Seville" suite, I can't help but think of Bugs and Elmer instead of anything else -- that's how ingrained it is. The film's peak comes when Bugs is massaging Elmer's head, using even his big floppy ears to smack that bald noggin into respectable shape, and then adds Figaro Fertilizer to his pate. The look on Fudd's face when he peers into the mirror Bugs holds up for him is simply priceless. His eyes widen little by little, an overjoyed smile creeps up below his nose. You can sense his excitement; it's as if years and years of abuse by the wascally wabbit are about to be absolved, as Elmer appears to grow a head of hair -- only to have his dream dashed in a millisecond when, with a crescendo, flowers pop up at the ends of the "hairs"!!! The rabbit wins again!

It is unconscionable that Warner Bros. has not seen fit to provide this incredible classic toon on home video yet! This toon deserves to be kept in the Library of Congress as the funniest short toon ever made!
