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...

Not a favourite but worth watching
7 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Good Bugs Bunny cartoon, if a little predictable,and not as well paced, plus I am sorry to say but the stitching scene did not work for me. That said, the climatic scene is funny, and Bugs is still his outlandish self.

The animation is nice and detailed, the music is good as always, the story is fine and the voice characterisations from Mel Blanc, a truly brilliant voice actor, are spot on. Also good are the writing and a vast majority of the sight gags. However, as I have said already, it is predictable, somehow I knew that Bugs would win in the end and the pace was rather uneven.

Overall, not a favourite of mine I admit but I do recommend it. 7/10 Bethany Cox
