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...

Bugs Bunny becomes a champion wrestler. Read more...
10 June 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

It is a wrestling championships and it is the fearsome, muscle packed Crusher versus the dainty, light and silly Ravishing Ronald. An assemble of people come to announce the arrival of Ravishing Ronald, including Bugs Bunny, who, not that surprisingly, is scoffing carrots in a large carrot dish. Ravishing Ronald is having a huge amount of trouble a minute later in the contest and Bugs Bunny decides to take his place, having quite a lot of heart. Madcap intelligence and slapstick follow...

I like this episode because, it has good animation of the audience and the slapstick, the episode has a clever plot outline, there are clever twists of the plot, the slapstick is good (animation- wise of course - and entertainment wise) and the "Masked Terror" is a good character and believable.

I recommend this episode to people who like slapsticky Bugs Bunny episodes + wrestling. Enjoy "Bunny Hugged"! :-)
