Storyline

The big wrestling match: The Crusher vs. Ravishing Ronald. Ronald's mascot is Bugs Bunny ("it's a living"). But Ronald is massively outmatched by The Crusher, and Bugs, seeing his meal ticket threatened, quickly substitutes as "The Masked Terror." But Bugs is no match for him either, at least on a pure physical level. So it's time for Bugs to apply "strategy." He rips his mask, making Crusher think it was his pants fortunately, Stychen Tyme, the tailor, is handy - complete with needle to stick in a sensitive spot. Enraged, Crusher charges, right through the giant safe, into the ropes; Bugs closes the door, Crusher crashes into the safe and is dazed. Bugs suggests he rest up on this nice soft mat...

Nice Bugs

Bunny Hugged (1951)

*** (out of 4)

Spoof of wrestling has Bugs Bunny jumping into the ring after his owner is destroyed by The Crusher. Once inside the ring the rabbit is totally out of his league so he must use his brains to try and bring down the best. There's quite a bit that happens inside the seven-minutes of this short. There's pretty much action from the start to finish and most of it is very good. The best sequence is early on in the picture and doesn't even feature the hero Bugs. It's a scene where The Crusher destroys the other wrestler, a "pretty boy" type and the way he's destroyed is just hilarious. The violent action is another plus as is all of the animation, which looks extremely well.
